Our next Toy & Train Collectors Fair at Oak Park, Walsall Wood on Sunday 11th September 2016 will have moved into the brand new Oak Park Active Living Centre which has been built at the rear of the old Oak Park Leisure Centre as we have known it for the last 25 years. The new postal address is Coppice Road, Walsall Wood, Walsall, WS8 7DG - Telephone: 01922 652266. However parking for visitors can still be used on the old car park as if you take the path down the side of the old building and then onto the yellow path you will see the new building in front of you.
This will be the beginning of a new era for our Toy & Train Fair which has been going for 25 years. A brand new larger sports hall which will enable us in the future to take a few more traders at what has become a very popular fair which in the old centre was always fully booked.
See the Toy Fair page for pictures of the new sports hall.
Many thanks to the traders and hundreds of collectors who visited our event at Oak Park Leisure Centre, Walsall Wood on Sunday 15th May 2016.
Another very successful event which brings to an end our 25 years of Toy and Train Collectors Fairs in the current Leisure Centre which is shortly to be demolished in the next few months. However we are excited to be looking forward towards the future with the New Leisure Centre due to open July/August which is currently nearing completion and being built at the rear of the old centre.
Our next date is planned for SUNDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER 2016.
Please keep a lookout on our website and in the local press for further developments on progress with the new build and our plans for future Toy and Train Fairs at the new Leisure Centre in Walsall Wood from September 2016.

DUDLEY CLASSIC CAR & TRANSPORT SHOW, HIMLEY HALL, DUDLEY
SUNDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER 2015
Many thanks to all our traders/exhibitors and the public for the tremendous support we had at our event at Dudley Classic Car event on the 6th September 2015. The weather was perfect resulting in a good day out for all.
A huge thank you for all the goodwill messages from the hundreds of individuals and clubs at our Dudley event. Apologies to those of you we could not get to but a perfect end to 44 years of classic car shows for us. We are unable to respond personally to all the hundreds of messages we have received but some of the comments will be on a special website page - The End of an Era (link on the side panel)
A particular thank you to all our staff past and present over the years including Amanda in the rally control, Nicola for her help with administration and work on the show days, the marshalls, family members who have supported us throughout the years along with the caterers, security, first aid as well as the host venues for their assistance and co-operation for the smooth running of the events and all the public supporters over the years.
Finally thanks to our two wonderful boys Nick and Richard who have seen the events grow from start to finish and had to put up with all the ups and downs of working with outdoor events all their life - getting up at 6am in the morning with long days whatever the weather.
We are handing over a strong legacy to Gemini Events and trust they will be able to continue to achieve for many years to come what we have started. We leave the Classic Car event scene with some amazing memories and lots of friends and acquaintances gained over the past 40+ years.
All the best to everyone for the future.
Geoff and Linda Price
