MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION
Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone, October 6-
Adult: £6.50, Child: £3.00, Family: £16 (2 Adults/2 Children)
After much consideration and discussion with the Exhibition Committee I have come to the conclusion that, regrettably, this year's Exhibition should be cancelled. With Coronavirus posing a serious risk to a large proportion of our exhibitors and visitors, many of whom may currently be shielding, we believe that trying to run the show whilst promoting social distancing would seriously reduce visitors' enjoyment of the exhibits.
We have considered the financial costs of running an exhibition of this size, the real possibility of much reduced footfall, the difficulties posed by trying to allow social distancing in the Leas Cliff Hall, and the likelihood of many of our exhibitors and traders pulling out at fairly short notice.
If you are a layout owner/operator due to appear this year,I will be in contact shortly to arrange alternative options, traders and societies will be contacted shortly by other members of my committee.
As a Club, we want our visitors to have an enjoyable and safe Exhibition that they would want to visit every year. As we are unlikely to be able to provide them with the experience they deserve, we feel that cancelling now is the most appropriate way forward and we hope that you will support us in this decision.
We wish you all good health through the rest of the pandemic and hope to see you again soon.
