Announcement: Midland Expo 2014 Venue and Date

We are pleased to announce that Midland Expo 2014 will take place on Sunday, 27th July 2014 and the show will be returning to The Leasowes Leisure Centre, Halesowen.

 As the show flyer says, IPMS Birmingham will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014, having been formed in 1964 - the year following the founding of the International Plastic Modellers Society and we would like Midland Expo 2014 to commemorate this milestone.

The return to The Leasowes has been prompted by the many adverse comments we have received regarding car parking at Cocks Moors Woods. While an excellent venue in many ways with a large car park the popularity of its other facilities including swimming pool, gym and golf course meant there was high demand for the available spaces. With the Leasowes there are no competing facilities and the on-site parking will be almost exclusively available for show visitors, traders and exhibitors. Although the total floor area is slightly smaller we believe that with careful planning we will be able to accommodate all of our regular supporters.
