All aboard as en­gines roll in to pro­mote steam spe­cial

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

STEAM en­gines will be driven from Sellindge to Hythe this week­end to pro­mote the Sellindge Steam Spe­cial to be held in May.

Or­gan­iser An­dre Dou­ble will be part of the team on Satur­day. He said plans for the three-day event in May are go­ing well and that more than 80 bands have been signed up to pro­vide the mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment.

There are also plans to im­prove the food for this year’s event on May 26 to 28. An­dre said: “The Gar­den Cater­ing Com­pany has a reg­u­lar con­tract at Wind­sor Cas­tle and for many pres­ti­gious events. It will bring its fa­mous green mar­quees to the show for the first time, serv­ing deli sand­wiches as well as cof­fee and waf­fles.

Other foods from around the world in­clude Thai dishes, spe­cial­ity Ger­man sausage, cur­ries and of course good old fash­ioned fish and chips. But peo­ple will still be able to get a burger, there will just be a much wider choice.”

Or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to have Europe’s high­est bungee jump at the show and are cur­rently hold­ing talks to book the 125ft at­trac­tion.

The mu­sic line-ups have been com­pleted with the ad­di­tion of a folk tent this year.

Mo­tor­cy­cle ex­hibitors are wanted and should con­tact the show for de­tails. Any­one in­ter­ested in hav­ing a stall at the show should also call.
