HFS 150 Logo

The 31st October 2018 sees the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Colonel Holman F. Stephens, who in the early decades of the last century engineered, built and managed a unique empire of branch line railways up and down the country. As part of these HFS150 celebrations, this year's Uckfield Model Railway Exhibition will feature several layouts either portraying a Colonel Stephens railway or inspired by one. The Colonel Stephens Society will also be present with a small society information stand.

Hot and cold refreshments, including meals at lunchtime, will be available from Luxfords, the licensed restaurant within the Civic Centre, which has waitress service.

The restaurant will open at 9am each day serving Bacon filled and Sausage filled rolls along with tea/coffee.

The Uckfield Civic Centre is a modern building situated in the very centre of the town. The High Street, featuring shops and places to eat, is only a minutes walk away. The free High Street car park (304 spaces) is adjacent to the venue and will be signposted from the town's bypass. Tesco, with its own car park, is also next to the venue.

If the free car park is full, the railway station car park (171 spaces) is nearby - cost £2 for up to 24 hours at the weekend.

The exhibition is all on one level of the Civic Centre which is disabled friendly. Access from the car park is via ramps. A limited number of periscopes will be available to borrow in return for a modest £5 returnable deposit. Sunday is a quieter day both in the town and exhibition.
