Sadly, Obbekaer has had to withdraw due to health reasons.
Philip Sweet, the shows co-ordinator has arranged with Chris Mackenzie (of Timpdon and Ffuglen fame) to bring his diorama of Manod Quarry in its place.
Since the vacant space is next door to Roger Markland's art exhibition, it was thought to be interesting to have a model based on how the National Gallery protected its paintings from bomb damage during WWII. Chris volunteered to bring his other diorama, Duffield Bank, and a few other bits and pieces to fill the gap. Both dioramas are to 1/12 scale and 50mm track gauge.

Sad, two cancelations due to ill health. At least the substitutes look interesting.
If anyone else cancels I can always bring my French boxfile layout.

Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.

just been to exhibition, well worth it , much better that that one down at NEC last week.
I mentioned to one of the members that I thought there might be a better venue. I thought it was Foundation House, but it is actually Federation House. The tram line goes up the hill past it out of Victoria station. I visited it just after an art gallery were involved, and the space is fantastic. Worth while googling it. It is only just round the corner from the CIS building. It was empty when I saw it, so it might have changed since 2014.

Thanks, Simon!
I'm glad you enjoyed the show and I'll pass on your venue suggestion to the powers that be.
I managed to enjoy a couple of hours there yesterday too, don't know how I missed you?
Cheers,
John.
