New Yorkshire Garden Railway Show

After fifteen years holding our show at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, we have decided to move the show to a new venue. There are two factors behind this decision. First, we wanted a little more space; to accommodate invited layouts, to have wider aisles for visitors and to give some traders the extra tables they have asked for.

Second, we have had difficulties with Barnsley Council again in booking Building 21 at Elsecar for 2018 and 2019.  

This means the show will have a new name!The Yorkshire Garden Railway Show 2018 will be held at Richard Dunn Sports Centre BD6 1EZ in Bradford which is a short distance from the M606, a spur off the M62 at Junction 26.

This venue has a double sports hall with level access from the car park nearby. There is dedicated show parking for hundreds of vehicles on site and a separate café space outside of the hall.

In 2018 the Yorkshire Garden Railway Show has been booked for 6 and 7 October with setting up from 2pm on Friday 5 October.  The 2019 date returns to the last week in September : 28 and 29th.
