The success of the AGM Exhibition relies on willing volunteers to assist on the day, with setting up the hall and helping our exhibitors to set up in the morning, manning the front door during the day and then helping pack it all up again at the end. Without these people, there would not be an Exhibition. We all owe a debt of thanks to the Trent Valley Area Group for yet another successful and enjoyable event.

Exhbition and AGM - General Information

Our Annual Exhibition is held in June of each year. The date can be found in the Show Diary. Currently it is held at the Town Hall in Burton-upon-Trent, a suitably central location to allow members from all over the country to attend.

The Exhibition is open to both members and non-members and is notable for displaying both a good number of superb model railway layouts in or about 7mm scale and having excellent trade representation. Refreshments and real ale are available.

The AGM itself commences at 2pm and every effort is made to keep it short and to the point allowing members to return to viewing the layouts.

As part of the Exhibition a number of trophies are awarded for layouts and models at the convention and for these anyone attending the Exhibition can vote. Other trophies are awarded for items such as the best article in Narrow Lines in the previous year. This is the Mervyn Axson Trophy which members can vote for either using the list in Narrow News or online here - Mervyn Axson Literary Award when the list is updated in respect of 2015 articles.

Members can access the Annual Exhibition Trophy Rules here. (You will need to log on)
