I am organising a celebration of PostWar toys, 1945-1975, at The Discovery Centre, Jewery Street Winchester SO23 8RX on 12-13th Sept 10am-4pm each day. Adults £3, OAP'S £2, Chjild £1. Refreshments available all day and it's only a few minutes walk from Winchester Railway Station. Parking is best in the old cattle market which is only 200 yards away.
For Railway fans Tornado will be running through Winchester on the Saturday (please check timings). There will be a fantastic range of 50's TV related toys from Watch with Mother and other programmes. There will also be Dolls and Dolls Houses, a superb Dinky display plus Corgi, Spot -On and other diecast vehicles, Toy Shops, Post Offices etc, Kitchen Cookers, Scalextric, Festival of Britain Toys as well as Meccano, Triang Toys, Airfix, Britains Farm and zoo series, Toy Soldiers, Forts and Castles.
There will also be Mettoy Tin buildings, Construction toys such as 60's Lego, Betta Bilda, Arkitex and Bayko, Brimtoy Trucks, Hornby O gauge and Dublo railway. The centre piece will be a mammoth Tri-Ang OO gauge layout with Minic Motorway and Model Land. We believe it will be the largest Tri-ang display layout since the 60's.
Winchester has a lot to offer, good shopping, free museums and good eating houses plus a lovely Catherdral so make a day out-you will not be disappointed. If anyone wants to display a small collection please let me know ASAP as I'm sure I can fit one in.
The whole show is to raise money for Leonard Cheshire Disability.
