WMMS: A Brief History
The West Midland Military Modelling Show origins stretch back into the 1970s. Alumwell has been home to wargamers and modellers for considerable time. During the 1970s David Bickley and Phil Robinson steadily built the Show up into one of the Midlands most popular one-day events. From the mid-1980s the baton was passed to Paul Yates and David Jarman who continued to expand the show as its popularity grew.
The original Alumwell School venue was no longer suitable and Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton looked a good prospect. So it was with a deep breath that the 2005 Show moved to Aldersley.
After a few years finding its feet, the event is now firmly established as one of the biggest shows in the West Midlands. We still have scope to expand and improve the show year on year, so hopefully 2017 will have new and more varied exhibits, and more traders for you.
