He'll be arriving for 1pm both days. Magic shows at 1.30pm and 3pm Saturday, 1pm and 2.30 Sunday. There will be a fairground ride and inflatable slide as well as the opportunity to ride on Thomas the Train.
We are very pleased to welcome back fabulous live music from The Hobblers on Saturday, and The Tildens (roots/Americana/country blues) on Saturday and Sunday. Artists from local folk clubs will also be performing both days.
Our collection of expertly restored diesel engines will be running inside the Museum throughout the day, including the spectacular Vickers Petter, which has recently undergone extensive work by our team of volunteers. Our volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions about the engines.
