Showcase 2015

DEMU Showcase is the premier UK exhibition dedicated to diesel and electric modelling and will be on the weekend of 30/31 May 2015. 2015 will see the 21st anniversary of DEMU and as a result we are planning the most ambitious exhibition which we have held yet.

Opening Times

Saturday 30 May 2015 10.00 - 17.00
Sunday 31 May 2015 10.00 - 16.00


Please note that there will be two venues:

Burton Town Hall, King Edward Place, Burton upon Trent, DE14 2EB. Map

National Brewery Centre, Horninglow Street Burton upon Trent, DE14 1NG. Map

Map of both locations (see the gold stars) Map

Both venues are situated very close to the railway station in Burton upon Trent and are a 10-15 minute walk between each venue. There is a a free shuttle bus running a circuit between the railway station - National Brewery Centre - Town Hall. There is very little/no parking at the Town Hall so we recommend parking at or near the National Brewery Centre.


All tickets are valid for the whole weekend to allow you enough time to see all the exhibits.

Ticket prices are:

  • Adults £12
  • DEMU members / children (U16) £9
  • Families (2 adults and unlimited children) £25
Advance ticket sales have now closed, but you can purchase a ticket on the day at either venue.
