IPMS Avon is holding its 26th annual show in conjunction with Lincombe Barn Wargames Society on Sunday 7th August 2016.

The show is being held at the Thornbury Leisure Centre, north of Bristol where there will be over 2,300m2 of display space spread over 3 large, well lit halls. There is also ample free parking for participants and visitors alike.

The show is again combining its very popular mix of plastic modelling and wargaming with its wide variety of displaying clubs and traders making this fantastic show the biggest combined show of its kind in the South.
