MNR Exhibition

Calling all GnOrfolkers,

Is anyone planning to visit the MNR Exhibition at Dereham on 26th February?

If so, shall we meet up for a natter and mug of tea (or whatever takes your fancy)?

MNR show

I may be there, Gerry, but it clashed with the Lincoln GRS show.

Last year the snow kept me to the Dereham show but (fingers crossed) I'll make it out of Norfolk this year :lol:

Sorry Gerry, but it's unlikely I'll make it. Phase 1 of the house move completes on the 28th. If everything gets moved according to plan, i.e. next weekend, then there's an outside chance I can make it across.

Gerry,
So far things are going almost to plan, so my intention is to make it across to Dereham with a colleague & sons. Maybe see you for that cuppa? If you've got the details to hand, could you post them (Dereham Memorial/Town Hall?) as all my magazines are still packed away somewhere.
Thanks, Alastair

From memory, if you park at the MNR it's just a short walk down the (main?) street to the first venue, then another short stroll to the second. I don't know if it's going to be split between two venues again this year.

MNR Exhibition

Hi Alastair,

Emrys is right about the two venues, but the MNR website only gives the Memorial Hall. Considering they claim that this year there will be more layouts than ever and increased trade support, it is difficult to see how they will get by with only one venue.

The Memorial Hall is easy to find. From the station, head towards the traffic lights by the level crossing. Turn left and the Memorial Hall is a short distance on the right. Easy to find and should be well signposted.

Three NG layouts are listed - Stump City, RAF Chapple (009) and Stoney End (7mm).

The exhibition is open from 10 until 4 and I should be there late morning / linchtime if you fancy a cuppa.
