About the Model Tractor, Plant and Construction Show
William Lambe (1765–1847) was born in the English town of Warwick and was a physician and a pioneer of vegetarianism and a vegan diet. The eccentric eschewer of animal-based foods embraced a diet of vegetables and distilled or filtered water and did not partake in coffee, tea, or dairy. Followers of Lambe will be happy to know that the lunch menu at the Mezzanine Restaurant in the Warwickshire Event Centre (WEC) offers Vegetarian Cottage Pie and mineral water. Vegan Model Tractor enthusiasts and others who enjoy the meatier aspects of life will also be pleased to know that the WEC is the venue of February’s Model Tractor, Plant & Construction Show.
The Warwick Vintage Tractor & Machinery Society (WVTMS) and the Friends of Ferguson Heritage come together on a Sunday in early February to display what they call a “vast amount” of model tractors and a “fantastic display” of 20 full-sized tractors ranging from vintage to current day models.
The Tamiya Truckin’ Club will be in attendance with their 1/14 and 1/16 radio-controlled model construction vehicles. Modellers will be vying for a coveted shield in four classes including a junior section for younger hobbyists. Experienced modellers will display many inspiring dioramas and suppliers will be present to show off their newest products and help you add to your diorama.
Meridienne Exhibitions Ltd. is the event organiser and they have been in the business of presenting leading exhibitions for modellers and hobbyists for over 40 years. The WVTMS was formed in 1980 by a small band of local enthusiasts. Every year the group arranges and attends local shows within the Warwickshire area. The Model Tractor Plant & Construction Show is growing every year and is becoming one of the best shows for any tractor modeller or enthusiast.

Somewhere to Stay in Warwickshire
Hotels and B&Bs are nearby and according to the WEC, there are about 1800 beds within a 10-mile radius. No need to worry about sharing a “bed” with strangers because there are more accommodations beyond that 10-mile radius. The nearest campsite is the Harbury Fields Caravan Park less than 2 miles away. The site is perfect for those seeking to stay in a convenient location with tranquil surroundings. Tent campers need to remember that the show is in February and that might put a damper on any tent camping plans.
Other Things To Do Around Nr Leamington Spa
Weekend visitors attending the Sunday show will want to pay a visit on Saturday to St. John's House Museum, a historic home in Warwick with a Victorian kitchen, classroom, and toy displays, plus a regimental museum and gardens. It has a history that spans almost 900 years. Another nearby place to go is the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum, a museum of a historic regiment, featuring military weapons, uniforms, artwork, and other artifacts.
Parking is free at the WEC. Dogs are not allowed at our events except for assistance dogs. Disability access begins with a designated, sign-posted parking area for Blue Badge holders close to the main entrance. There are three accessible toilets at the venue and the ground floor event is wheelchair accessible. Finally, be kind to vegans as the pepperoni and cheese omitted from their pizza will mean more for yours.
