The Heritage Motor Centre is preparing to host its second Toy and Collectors Fair, following the ‘huge success of last year’s event.’

The event will run this spring and is expected to echo the popularity of last year’s show, with hundreds of visitors attending to see collectables and antique toys from over 100 exhibitors.

Toy fans and antique collectors will be able to find a host of teddy bears, dolls, toy cars, buses, planes, train models and more at the Toy Fair taking place on Sunday, April 27th, including some of the big brand names such as Matchbox, Corgi and Scalextric.

Visitors will be able to spend the day buying, selling, exchanging or valuing vintage toys and collections.

The fair will also coincide with national Drive It day, during which the Heritage Motor Centre will see over 350 classic cars converge throughout to visit the museum.

Tom Caren, show manager for the Heritage Motor Centre, said: “After the success of last year’s fair, we are delighted to be hosting a second Toy and Collectors Fair, which I am sure will be even more popular with collectors of all ages.

“Not only can visitors enjoy the fair but at the same time they can admire over 350 classic cars on the day.”

Entry to the fair is £3 per person, and visitors to the Toy and Collectors Fair will receive a discounted museum entrance rate of £8.

Exhibitors can book a table by calling 01926 645029.
