The Great North Steam Fair At Beamish – A Steam Extravaganza!

Steam along to Beamish next weekend for one of the biggest events of the year – The Great North Steam Fair. At this four-day steam spectacular, from 12th to 15th April, there’ll be vehicles of all shapes, sizes and colours, with something for everyone to enjoy. Most of the museum’s magnificent steam vehicles will be in action or out on view and there’s a host of visiting attractions too.

One of the museum’s own replica Georgian steam engines will give rides on Pockerley Waggonway and, at Rowley Station, the passenger service will be hauled by Baxter, built in 1877 by Fletcher Jennings and on loan from the Bluebell Railway. North Norfolk Railway’s locomotive, Y7, will work on the Colliery line alongside the museum’s own recently restored ‘Coffee Pot No.1’ . The Colliery Yard will also host a working narrow gauge railway with diminutive shunting engines Paddy and Chaloner.

An amazing array of traction engines, steam lorries and steam rollers, with wonderful names such as Ayesha, Providence and Rambler, will trundle around the museum and there’ll be a fabulous display of visiting vintage vehicles – cars, vans, motorcycles and more besides.

There’ll be rides on the beautiful 119-year-old steam Gallopers and family fun to join in – a tug of war, model making, steam-themed science activities and much more besides.

Head to Beamish for The Great North Steam Fair, it’s a must for steam and transport enthusiasts and a great day out for families too. There’s no extra charge for this action-packed event, admission is included in the admission charge to Beamish.
