Now in its 16th year, the Fes­ti­val of Steam and Trans­port is back for Easter, and prom­ises to be big­ger than ever as part of the dock­yard’s 400th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

Steam through the years, tra­di­tional rides and steam­punks are among the fun of the fair at the His­toric Dock­yard Chatham over the two-day event. Heavy­weight steam en­gines, vin­tage ve­hi­cles and run­ning trains will be pow­er­ing through the dock­yard site as the fes­tiv­i­ties take over.

The tra­di­tional funfair will have a va­ri­ety of fair­ground rides, in­clud­ing the dodgems, swing boats and the Chair-o-planes. There will be live mu­sic from folk to coun­try and vin­tage to soul, as well as the In­ter­na­tional Food and Drink Fes­ti­val from the Mar­ket Square Group.

The Steam­punks, tak­ing over No.3 Slip with en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing an in­ven­tors’ corner, live mu­sic, arts and crafts stands, a fairy cave and Steam­punk fairies, as well as an au­thors’ corner with plenty of Steam­punk books, sign­ings and read­ings.
