    Another successful event in 2017 so we have decided to do it all again. The list is just about sorted, subject to something happening. Already the initial layout list has been amended a number of times but we have an excellent selection again. Nearly all are new to Workington so local people can expect to see some wonderful models. Those of you that travel from a distance can expect a warm welcome and the cafe will be open for bacon butties to start the day then a full lunchtime menu with hot and cold meals available. Something for everyone is our mantra and we think we have done it again! Let us know what you think? the Largest event of its type in Cumbria.
