6th – 8th August

Help celebrate our achievements from over the last 60 years with a packed weekend of displays, activities, music, festivities and, of course, steam engines.

Ever wondered how a heritage railway works? Meet the volunteers and get special behind the scenes guided tours of our workshops and other staff only areas!

Let us transport you back in time to the golden age of steam as the Railway presents 60 years of Bluebell. Experience intensive steam hauled passenger services along the line and activities at Sheffield Park, Kingscote, East Grinstead and at Horsted Keynes Station.

Looking for that festival atmosphere? Head to Horsted Keynes Station and visit our events field to enjoy good food and live bands playing classics from across the last six decades. On Saturday we have steam services late into the evening and entertainment from local bands.

Exclusive access will be available each day to restricted areas across the railway including our carriage and wagon sheds, locomotive works and running sheds with guided tours throughout the weekend. Kids Kingdom will provide fun and games suitable for all ages. For the big kids, brake van rides and diesel driving taster experiences should appeal!

To top-off the weekend festivities, on Sunday afternoon we are planning a locomotive cavalcade of all our working engines.

This will be a celebration of six decades of what Bluebell Railway does best. Further information and a selection of ticket types will be available soon – so stay tuned!
