Due to the continuing closure of all tourist attractions including heritage railways, the Railway is sorry to announce the cancellation of further planned events. These include the Dads’ Army Live! weekend that was due to take place on the 24 / 25th May, the Day Out With Thomas weekend on the 29 – 31 May, the Mixed Traction Gala on the 12 – 14 June, the Bus Rally on the 4 July, Vintage Transport Day on the 5 July, the Beer Festival on the 17 – 19 July and the Autumn Steam Gala due to be held on the 4 – 6 September.
An announcement will be made shortly regarding the 40s Weekend which is due to take place on the 19 – 20 September.
We along with all other heritage railways are awaiting indications from the Government as to when we might be allowed to re-open, but planning is well under way to restore train services with appropriate social distancing in place as soon as we are permitted to do so.
