A tombola will be held and refreshments on sale, with proceeds from the event going to the nominated charity, Martin House children's hospice.

Each year the event attracts hundreds of visitors and modellers from all over the district.

Club spokesman Graham Harpham said: "We have one of the biggest exhibitions in the area and attracted around 400 people over the two days last year.

"It's popular because there's lots of activities for the whole family to come and enjoy."

The exhibition will be open from 10am to 5pm both days, with a free bus service operating from Huddersfield station.

Admission costs pounds 4 for adults and pounds 3 for children and concessions.
