Show Diary


The members layouts listed under each year, are scheduled to be at the stated exhibitions. We hope you will be able to attend any in your area. We will soon have a Photo Gallery showcasing examples of the standard reached by many of our members. Would members let us know where and when your layout is being exhibited by email to the Chairman, the Narrow News editor and the Webmaster. (click here to open a new email in your email client) We also welcome details of exhibitions your group is running. Full details of exhibition times and venue would be appreciated. Please quote your membership number in all correspondence. Whilst endeavouring to ensure details above are correct, the Association, its officers or members, cannot be held responsible for changes or cancellations to any of the events, or for errors that may occur in publishing these details.
