THE NEXT TOY & TRAIN COLLECTORS FAIR at Oak Park Active Living Centre, Coppice Road, Walsall Wood, WS8 7DQ on SUNDAY 18TH MARCH 2018 - Doors open 10.30am - 3.00pm


See Ann Evans two page report and pictures below from our event in the May 2017 issue of Collectors Gazette.



Since moving to the new larger hall in September 2016 we have held our original 2016 charges for the first two events in the new hall which have not sen an increase of either table rents or admission charges since January 2012.  An achievement which we do not think any other organiser within the UK could say they have done.  However we do need to increase both our table rents and Admission charges to the event from 1st January 2017.


Therefore please note we have tried to keep the increases to an absolute minimum and they still represent excellent value compared to similar size fairs elsewhere in the country.


From 1st January 2017 the following charges will apply.

Table rents will be £21.00 per single table - 2 tables will be £39.00

For more than 2 tables please request information.


Admission Charges from 1st January 2017

Adults £1.80  -  Senior Citizens £1.50  - Child £1.00


For future reference the new postal address is Oak Park Active Living Centre,  Coppice Road, Walsall Wood, Walsall, WS8 7DG - Telephone: 01922 652266.  Additional parking for visitors can still be used on the old car park off the Lichfield Road as well as the venues new car park.  You will see the building from the old car park easily and it is only approximately 2 minutes walk.


This new venue is the beginning of a new era for our Toy & Train Fair which has been going for 26 years.  A brand new larger and brighter sports hall which will enable us in the future to take a few more traders and offer more space giving comfort for both visitors and traders.


See the Toy Fair page for pictures of the new sports hall.

W O W !!





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.


"What a day to remember for us - Cakes, Cards, Gifts, Drinks, Flowers - A memory book full of lovely comments - The End of an Era"


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.
