    Thanks.
    So to get it clear the SVR Spring Gala IS 13th - 16th April, as originally said by Westernregionhampshireman on the opening post of this thread?
    Can't find anything on the SVR website.

    Great Central Railways at Work 25th/26th March has disappeared off website, it was there as we booked a hotel! Does anyone know if it’s definitely cancelled before we move our hotel bookings to one of the galas on offer!
