I'm afraid this event will not be going ahead because of the Covid19 restrictions.

The railway is opening at the end of July with a very restricted timetable and restricted movements around the stations.

I have spoken to the Events team and they are hoping to have some form of events later in the year.

I hope we can put this on next year I will keep you informed.

Another event cancelled which is a real shame. Hopefully it'll be on next year because it's a great venue and has the potential to be a must attend event.

That's a real shame, this looked like a great opportunity for all concerned.  just like to thank Derek and Mo for the work they put into arranging the event, hopefully next year.
