Information:

Another New O Gauge Show as requested by members.

We were asked to space our four events across the year and have one in Spring, one in Summer, Guildex in autumn and a new show in Winter.

With the loss of the Leigh O gauge show and the Wigan Finescale Show, we were asked to make the new show accessible for members in the North West and Yorkshire.

This venue (previously used for the Wigan Finescale Show) fits the bill nicely:

Wigan Finescale Show used two halls at the lesiure centre 

Two halls

15 mins walk from Wigan station

10 minutes from the M6

15 minutes from M61

The Leisure Centre and Arena Car Parks hold 350 cars for £4.50 per day

Wigan Athletic Overspill car park is £5.00 per day 

All the car parks charge to prevent people using them for the shopping centre

If you look at a map you will see the venue is near to the large Robin Park Retail Park so somewhere for wives or partners to visit too.
