Successful Toy Fair returns to the Heritage Motor Centre

After the success of last year’s fair, the Heritage Motor Centre is to host another Toy and Collectors Fair on Sunday 27 April. The event is yet again expected to attract hundreds of visitors. Over 100 exhibitors from all over the UK will be show-casing a range of collectables from old and new toys such as teddy-bears and dolls, to car, bus, plane and train models.

Thousands of collectables will be for sale including some big brand names from the past and present such as Corgi, Dinky, Matchbox, Spot-On Diecast, Scalextric, Model Railways in OO and N gauges, O gauge by Hornby, Tinplate and Steam Toys. Other items will include TV, Film and Advertising collectables such as enamel signs, show-cards, rare old bottles, pot lids, breweriana and kitchenalia.

Visitors can spend the day buying, selling, exchanging or valuing their vintage toys and collections, with prices starting from as little as a couple of pounds whilst rare items are expected to sell for hundreds.

The fair also coincides with national ‘Drive It’ day when over 350 classic cars will converge at the HMC throughout the day to visit the museum. The HMC is also providing discounted entry to the Museum so visitors can look around the vast collection of historical British cars plus they can enjoy a delicious range of hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks in the Junction 12 Cafe.

Tom Caren, Show Manager for the Heritage Motor Centre stated, “After the success of last year’s fair, we’re delighted to be hosting a second Toy & Collectors Fair which I’m sure will be even more popular with collectors of all ages. Not only can visitors enjoy the fair but at the same time they can admire over 350 classic cars on the day!”

Entry to the fair is just £3 per person. Museum entry for Toy and Collectors Fair visitors is at a special discounted rate of £8. For traders, tables are priced at £32 which includes 2 chairs, Wi-Fi and free admission to the museum (maximum two people).
