The second of this years Model Tractor, Construction and Literature shows is set to take place on Sunday 7 October. The Spalding Show is recognised as the largest gathering of its type for farm toy enthusiasts in Britain, attracting traders and enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe. Expect to find a wide selection of obsolete toy tractors on offer, as well as the latest model releases from all the leading manufacturers.
Many model makers use the event as a platform to release new models. This offers a great advantage to the show visitors, who are able to purchase items not usually found at regular toy fairs, as well as many of the older or unique models unobtainable elsewhere.
The model tractor world has grown enormously in recent years and this is reflected in the show with new areas of interest such as dioramas. Several will be on display and they can be entered into a competition offering cash prizes for the best dioramas exhibited. The event will feature a small display of full-sized tractors, and as usual a limited-edition show model will be on sale during the day.
The show will be held at the usual venue: the Springfields Exhibition Centre (just off the A16 bypass), Spalding, Lincolnshire. The centre offers excellent restaurant facilities and there is ample car parking. In addition the Springfields Festival Garden shopping outlet will cater for those members of the family not interested in tractors!
