Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show back again

Since its inception four years ago the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show is now firmly established as the premier dedicated farm toy and model show in Ireland with the organisers Keith Scott and Alastair Bell now looking forward to what promises to be an excellent event for all farm model enthusiasts from throughout Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show welcomes visitors to Portrush each year and visitor numbers have steadily risen over the years making this bi-yearly event firmly embedded in the farm model collectors’ calendar.

The Show is once again being held at the Best Western Magherabuoy House Hotel in Portrush, County Antrim on Friday November 27 from 2.00pm where visitors and collectors alike can socialise and enjoy this dedicated farm toy and model show.
On offer will be farm models in 1:87, 1:32 and 1:16 scales with brands such as Britain’s, Universal Hobbies, SIKU, ROS, Wiking, Schuco available at this one-stop model tractor experience.

DBP Model Tractors, one of Europe’s leading model makers, will also be attending the Portrush Show which is the only Show they will be attending In Ireland before the end of this year.

The event also offers Lorries by Corgi, Tekno, WSI and model cars that include rally cars and American muscle cars. Local farm diversification businesses will also be attending the event offering visitors some of their local craft merchandise.

On the day the Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund will benefit from different prize draws taking place as well as a model tractor auction, so visitors are asked to dig-deep and support the work of this deserving charity which has helped so many people throughout Northern Ireland.

Running alongside the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show will be the inaugural Northern Ireland ActivTRAC Show which will be showcasing a comprehensive range of pedal, battery and petrol powered fun, leisure and business vehicles. These will include pedal go karts and tractors, Segways, quads and mini tractors.

Visitors to this Show will also be able to race to win some prizes and try other fun-filled activities for all the family. Also on offer will be the opportunity to try out some of the local active experiences.
