Welcome to the Toy & Train Collectors Fairs at Walsall Wood




Following a successful event in the new venue on the 11th September we would like to thank both traders and visitors for their support and the positive feedback that we received during and after the event.


For future reference the new postal address is Oak Park Active Living Centre,  Coppice Road, Walsall Wood, Walsall, WS8 7DG - Telephone: 01922 652266.  Parking for visitors can still be used on the old car park off the Lichfield Road as well as the venues new 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 right in front of you.  Eventually the old building will be demolished and therefore provide even further on  site car parking.


This new venue is the beginning of a new era for our Toy & Train Fair which has been going for 25 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.


Geoff and Linda Price
