"The Friendly Show"

Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March

Plastic Modelling Show

Sadly due to the COVID-19 issues and Government advice we have taken the sad decision to cancel the show.

Many thanks to everyone who has attended over the years and helped us raise a significant amount of money to donate to the St Francis Hospice.


The 2019 show raised 3,000 for the Hospice

Over the years we have now raised over 84,000!

Southern Expo is, we like to think, one of the largest and friendliest plastic modelling shows in the South East of England.  It is a display of modelling talent put on by modelling clubs and specialist interest groups to show the results of hours of work.  Along side this are many trade stands where you could purchase kits both old and new plus all those longed for accessories.
