Stockton shows - our history

We started our show history in 1981 as our way to celebrate the International Year of the Disabled Person. We wanted to celebrate the year in an unusual way by staging an event showing off the hobby which had given us so much pleasure. Such was the show's success that we were asked to make the event an annual event - and the rest is history.
