Due to the circumstances regarding COVID 19 and to ensure that Hornby staff are not put at unnecessary risk, we have reluctantly had to make the decision to not attend any shows during the rest of 2020. Any shows that we had planned to attend in 2020 which are still going ahead we will support where possible.

We hope that in 2021 we will be able to return to normality with hopefully all events being bigger and better than before.

We thank you for your understanding.

Great Dorset Steam Fair, Tarrant Hinton, Blandford Forum DT11 8HX

If you’re looking for an excellent fun and action packed day out for all the family, you’ll love the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Traditionally this English fair is held at the village of Tarrant Hinton, near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside.

From small beginnings this annual event has become one of the favoured places for those interested in how people lived, worked and played in bygone years and it is now widely recognised as “THE” National Heritage Show. The spectacle covers an enormous showground, at over 600 acres being one of Europe’s largest outdoor event locations.
