Shows Globalrail 2021

Update 20 January 2021

After due consideration of the extended restrictions and uncertainties around the covid pandemic, the GRS feel it would not be sensible to proceed with Globalrail 2021 on 21 May 2021, so have reluctantly cancelled the show.

We do hope to run a show in 2022 at the same venue (Didcot Civic Hall) and around the same date. As soon as I can confirm availability with the venue, the date will be announced.

Kind regards,
Alan Monk
GRS Globalrail Exhibition Manager

Saturday 22 May 2021, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
