Carlisle Toy Fair is Cumbria’s largest toy fair with 60 to 70 stalls and over 100 tables, loaded with items of interest to traders and collectors from across Scotland, the Borders, North East England, Cumbria and Lancashire .

 Held twice-yearly Carlisle toy fair has become a popular event for collectors. Come along to buy, swap and sell old and new models, including model railways, diecast vehicles, kits, soldiers and other figures, cabinets and much, much more. (Subject to stallholders’ stock on the  day).

 Whatever your model collecting passion, whatever your age –or simply whatever floats your boat, you can be sure to find something at the Shepherds Inn which will make your day!


If railways are your passion, then most gauges are catered for including ‘H’ (garden), ‘O’,  ‘OO’, ‘N’, and Z from famous names such as Bing, Bassett Lowke, Marklin, Graham  Farish,  Hornby,  Exley,  Wrenn, Triang, Bachmann, ACE, Heljan, and so much more.

Old Toys / models:

If older tin plate or diecast is your forte, then the Carlisle Toy Fair can offer a host of traditional marques to satisfy most model collectors’ needs, old or young. Well loved names such as Benbros, Triang, Morestone, Dinky, Airfix, Sutcliffe, Marklin, Lesney, Chad Valley, Marx, Victory, Britains - to name but a few.

 Modern Toys / models:

 Modern toy/model manufacturers bring a degree of detail and sophistication that once upon a time could only be dreamt about - that is, until now. These days names such as Brumm, Norev, BHM, Matrix, IXO, MiniChamps, Oxford, Corgi, Ilario, Spark etc. are continuing to develop new standards of perfection in model miniatures.


 If your model collecting falls more into one of the ‘specialist’ categories such as Robots, Lead soldiers, TV and Film, Slot cars, Farming, Military, Ships and Boats, Plastic models, Live Steam, Model Engineering, Plant & Construction, Circus/Showmans.... there is a good chance someone at the Fair will be sharing your passion too!

Some pages have digital services on them from third party providers off-site but still have the padlock indicating site security.  Google Maps is now as accountable to privacy law as we are. Please note that the maps are intended for safe reference only to avoid getting lost, not for use while in motion because distracted progress is dangerous.

Your use of our site requires your acceptance of Cookies.

As a visitor you don’t have to do anything to enable greater rights to the protection of your data, that is ensured by the new law. We hope that all website visitors will adhere to our terms of use which require people to adhere to the law and social propriety. You can access them from our Terms and Conditions on our legal and technical page.

To summarise the privacy section here:

Jim Corr and his website designer Charles Paxton aren’t asking you for any more of your data or asking to use it differently.

He has just updated his Privacy Policy to clarify:

  A)  what data we collect from you, Jim only needs the information that he asks you to provide him with to book your toy fair table or attend the toy fair events. That’s all. If you want to Like his Facebook page and stay in touch through later life, that’s up to you, and it’s fine with Jim.

   B)  how he uses this data. He may use traders’ and shoppers’ contact details that they give him to contact them about forthcoming toy fair events and to notify them of the schedule and he doesn’t use visitors’ personal data for any purpose other than relavant communication with them.


  C) your rights regarding our treatment of your data.  You have the following rights to privacy regarding your data:


The Data Protection laws give you the right to access information held about you, if any is held. Any access request may be subject to a fee of up to £20 to meet costs in providing you with details of the information (if any) that Jim holds about you and any information request must be accompanied by acceptable proof of your identity. Jim won’t just give your data to any one who asks for it. It may very well cost nothing to provide that information to you. He’ll verify important or complex instructions with you before acting on them. Please note that it may well be the case that we  cannot oblige you with any information about yourself. I know no personal information about website visitors unless they make comment about a Fair or interact with my Facebook or other social media. Even then I can only know what you tell me about yourself. On Facebook you can remove any comments made yourself. This is the Opt-in information age. The new law guarantees your power to change your mind and be in control of how your data is used. It’s powerful. You can opt out when you want and take your data with you.


We recognize that it’s our duty not to treat your data irresponsibly, to protect digital and analogue equipment that enables our business and take back-up measures. Jim may also keep written contact information about traders off-line. This is very necessary to guard against electronic equipment failure.  This also goes for my website designer and his files, Charles Paxton of


In the event that you’d like some or all your data deleted or your data taken off-line if it is online, please make your request to us jointly in writing and we’ll verify the details of your request with you to prevent mistakes, and then serve your request faithfully. It could be that you’d prefer not to feature in a photograph, or have your table mentioned in a flyer or in a past article, or something like that. Please ask, and we’ll be happy to oblige.  We may ask for proof of identity in some acceptable form to ensure we aren’t deleting someone else’s data who would like to retain it.


We won’t impede your right to move data to a rival toy fair or website either, or from the wrong place on the site to the right place, I think those are applicable examples of this right to move data away from where it might currently be.


Data breaches can happen to even large organizations such as banks and govt. offices. If I become aware of theft or loss of your data from hacking or equipment failure or any other possibility I shall endeavour to alert you as soon as possible. Please alert me if you become aware of such a risk, such as losing your notebook or lap-top or falling victim to a Phishing fraud or something like that, that might have security implications for us. We'd be grateful to be alerted. You are entitled to be alerted within 72 hrs by GDPR rules of a breach and we’re expected to be alert for them.

Please note that Jim can also be contacted by phone or SMS.

Please note that you can improve your security by not using the same password for different purposes and changing your passwords regularly and using complex and random ones. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you notice anything suspicious about the operation of this, or any sites that I made or manage. Thank you.

As I said you don’t have to do anything to enable greater rights to the protection of your data, that is granted by law. We still hope that all website visitors will adhere to our terms of use though. You can access them from our Legal page.
