Spring Carlisle Toy Fair Cancelled

We regret that the April 17 Carlisle Toy Fair has had to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. Sincere apologies to all our regular stallholders and customers. We are looking forward very much to the Autumn Fair – the date for this will be announced as soon as possible. Please check in again to see the schedule.

A great Carlisle Toy Fair!

Last Sunday’s Carlisle Toy Fair proved to be as popular as ever. Despite coinciding with Mothers’ Day an enjoyable time was had by visitors and stallholders alike with more tables to see than before.  Early bird visitors took full advantage of new collectors in attendance who had come to thin-out or sell their collections. The first few hours saw hundreds of collectors of all ages and interests, coming to see what they could find, or exchange.  The weekend’s antique and collectors fair (also being held on Montgomery way) also served to bring wider collectors into the H&H Exhibition Hall and the now legendary Cafeteria which was busy all day.

This was the last time Alan Gunston would be organising the twice-yearly event and he has now handed over the reigns to Jim and Therese Corr (of Gateshead and Chester-le-Street toy fair fame) who will be preparing for the next event on Sunday 27 September 2015. We wish them continued success in the future.

For further information, please contact Jim Corr on 07504035955

MORE SPACE available for late bookings

Some of the models on sale at CTF 2014

At the March 15th Carlisle Toy Fair, there’s more available stall space, beside the cafe.

MORE SPACE found for late bookings! Due to increasing demand for table space at the next  Carlisle Toy Fair on Sunday 15 March, another area has been opened up to accommodate stallholders who were unable to get into the main exhibition hall. This will be situated near the very popular cafeteria area and within view of the main event. Any late enquiries can still be taken on 07855 289271.

Ready to Roll……..

We are all set for a great event on Sunday 15th March – Mums and all! As well as the usual mix of stallholders drawn from across Scotland and the Borders, the North East, Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria, we have also some new faces who have decided to see what all the fuss is about at Rosehill. Some are selling off parts of their own collections whilst others in attendance are simply happy to put on a bit of a show, such as the North East Meccano Society; Peter Metcalfe (Hornby Dublo – 3-rail); George Johnson & David Ranson (demonstrating the appeal of ‘O’ gauge) and Peter Koch-Osborne’s amazing goods yard diorama – which is completely self-contained within 3 box files! See the attached image for a small taste of his work.12-01-23_113547__M=A_R=8_S=4 lo resIn contrast, Peter will also be showing a few of his treasured ‘O’ gauge locos. Whatever your model interests, new or vintage, big or small scale, you can’t help but be impressed by the variety and choice on offer. Don’t forget, you can buy, swap or sell and we are hoping to raise some money for the Great North Air Ambulance too!
