IPMS Avon is holding its 27th annual show in conjunction with Lincombe Barn Wargames Society on Sunday 13th August 2017.

The show is being held at the Thornbury Leisure Centre, north of Bristol where there will be over 2,300m2 of display space spread over 3 large, well lit halls. There is also ample free parking for participants and visitors alike.


The show is again combining its very popular mix of plastic modelling and wargaming with its wide variety of displaying clubs and traders making this fantastic show the biggest combined show of its kind in the South.

This year’s competition has seen some major revision to encourage the club and junior modeller to ‘have a go’. The Junior Class winner will receive a 12 month magazine subscription presented by Models for Heroes on behalf of Fine Scale Modeller Magazine. The wargamers out there are not forgotten either with Class 17 for War Game Units in any scale. See the list below, on the Competition tab, for all the new and revised classes.

We invite all modelling / wargaming clubs and traders to join us.

The lists will be updated as we receive confirmation of clubs and traders attending.
