Events overview

Brighton Toy and Model Museum is proud to participate in a number of initiatives and event schemes:

Folkroom Records logo,

The Toy Museum Folk Club brought the very best acts to the unique setting of Brighton Toy and Model Museum, creating an opportunity to watch intimate acoustic sets from the finest folk talents, within the unique environment of the museum.

Brighton Science Festival, logo

Brighton Science Festival is one of Brighton’s signature festivals, full of events that are primarily fun for kids (and for big kids!), but which carry a sneaky payload of knowledge-through-experience-through-play.

Brighton Fringe is the more anarchic, “anyone-can-participate” younger sibling to the more stately , curated Brighton Festival.
The Museum is a bookable Fringe venue.

Train Running Day, GWR 4079 "Pendennis Castle" on the museum's 1930s model railway layout, Brighton Toy and Model Museum, January 2019 .

Train Running Days are held two to three times a year and allow visitors to experience the full glory of multiple vintage trains clattering around the Museum’s central 1930s gauge 0 model railway layout, the way that Nature intended. For these events we take down the acrylic barriers, allowing a direct line-of-sight to the layout.

Train Running Days are usually “themed”.
