BMSS Annual Show
We are delighted to announce that the 2021 BMSS Annual Show will be held on Saturday 4th September 2021 at the Reading Central Salvation Army hall in Anstey Road, Reading, RG1 7JR, opposite the Hexagon theatre and Oracle shopping Centre. For more details please see the Annual Show page.
As the 2020 Show had to be cancelled because of the Covid pandemic it is a great pleasure to be able to have a show this year, even though it is a little delayed from our usual April date. For this year only, the Annual Show is combined with the annual BMSS Inter-branch competitions.
The 2019 BMSS Annual Show was held on Saturday 27 April 2019, and was a great success with the halls buzzing throughout the day. The heading photos show some of the outstanding models from the 2019 BMSS Annual Show:
Left: Imperial Guard Zouave 1855, by Mark Blowers, gold in Class 1 for single foot figures up to 54mm 'standard' size.
