BMSS Annual Show
It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the BMSS Annual Show on 25th April, in line with the government’s requests to minimise social interaction and reduced journeys. Also, many of our attendees are in the age bracket for greatest threat to their health, the space is limited at Pimlico and it would be impossible to keep to the 2-metre spacing!
The good news is that there will be an even bigger Annual Show next year the same weekend (25th April 2021) which will be, as announced at the AGM, in Reading at the Reading Central Salvation Army hall in Anstey Road, Reading, RG17JR, opposite the Hexagon theatre and Oracle shopping Centre.
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.
Centre top: 1st City of London Artillery Volunteers, by Andy Sharpe, silver in Class 7 for toy soldiers.
Centre bottom: “Granny”: British 15” howitzer, by Graham Cobb, gold in Class 6 for AFVs, soft skins and artillery.
Right: 17th/21st Lancer, Italy 1943, by Andy Statham, bronze in Class 1 for single foot figures up to 54mm 'standard' size.
