Steam fes­ti­val on track – and off it

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

There’s a gath­er­ing of steam from the road and rails as the Sum­mer Fes­ti­val of Steam pulls into the Spa Val­ley Rail­way.

The sum­mer fes­ti­val between Tun­bridge Wells and Eridge is on Satur­day, June 30 and Sun­day, July 1. A 100-year-old steam lo­co­mo­tive, trac­tion en­gines and steam rollers will all be part of the ac­tion.

The vet­eran Lan­cashire & York­shire A-class No. 52322 cour­tesy of Andy Booth will be one of the heavy metal highlights. Trains will be run­ning all day and there will be vin­tage ve­hi­cles, fam­ily games and live en­ter­tain­ment as well as a real ale and cider bar and bar­be­cue. Ad­mis­sion for one day with un­lim­ited train travel is £20, £10 for chil­dren or £45 for a fam­ily. En­try to the fes­ti­val with­out train travel costs £5 and £2.50 for chil­dren. Ad­mis­sion for both days with un­lim­ited train travel costs £35 and £15 for chil­dren. Book at spaval­leyrail­way.co.uk
