ADMISSION:  Adults £5.00       

In light of the cancellation of the Reading and Bristol O gauge events, We have decided to run a Trade Event at Royal Wootton Bassett. This event is run for the benefit of traders and customers in the absence of regular O gauge shows. Tickets are now on sale for Morning and Afternoon sessions. Tickets must be bought in advance via the website Morning session: 10am 12.30pm Afternoon session: 1.15pm 3.45pm

Please note a prize draw will be held for visitors who book their four-In-A-Car tickets in advance through the website
This is a trade only event, there are no layouts or other displays.
Parking on site is very limited and is restricted to four-In-A-Car and disabled drivers only(On production of a blue badge). Other car parks are available around the town.

We are pleased to advise that Oliver, along with the Squires Stand will be at Royal Wootton Bassett. He will have a slightly smaller stand, so please feel free to order in advance. Just call 01243 84 24 24 to speak to the team. 


For the first time in a very long time, we are pleased to have now updated The Squires Times Booklet.
Following a successful trip to Bexhill, we have now begun to confirm further bookings for 2021.
More information can be found on the dedicated Exhibitions Page.

As the UK continues to move forwards the Show Team is also warming up the engine on the van. We will be returning to shows in a careful and controlled manner. We remain conscious that not all of our team have been double jabbed and that some of our customers remain in the vulnerable categories.

Oliver will be venturing to Bexhill for our first "test" event. We will then look to confirm additional events as time progresses. At present, both Roger and Oliver will be leaning towards the cautious side of the table. Their main priority remains the heath and welfare of the team and customers - the Mail Order Service is still available to all. 

When Squires returns to shows, we will be asking all customers to use our hand sanitiser. We use an alcohol free sanitiser, which is lab tested for Coronavirus. 

Using the sanitiser will help us minimise any cross contamination, and ultimately allow us to keep our Stand as normal as possible. We will also be providing a screen to the Team. 

As per all of our services, our team are there to help you. If you would like a team member to give you more space or to use a screen, please just ask them. They won't be offended. Similarly, our team may also ask you to give them some space. We will kindly ask that their wishes are observed. 

More details on our exhibitions can be found here!
