Latest update regarding COVID-19 and the 2021 Show (Updated 8 January 2021)

It is with considerable regret that the Directors have made the decision to cancel the York Model Railway Show 2021. With the current coronavirus situation we consider that it will not be possible to ensure the health and wellbeing of participants or visitors at such an event even if circumstances start to improve by next Easter.

However, we have every intention of resurrecting the York Model Railway Show for 2022 with the expectation that the covid-19 pandemic problem will have stabilised or greatly improved within the next 15 months. We hope to be able to welcome you back to York for Easter 2022 (16/17/18th April).

For holders of Advance Tickets these will still be valid for 2022. However, if you would like a refund please bear with us while we make arrangements to implement a procedure and check back on the website after Christmas. Site being updated with this information 11 December 2020.

This link is to the Show’s Press Release on this matter. It has also been added as blog post. (Added 8 Jan 2021)
