13th & 14th August 2022
Join us for a weekend full of Steampunk festivities. There will be a fabulous line-up of performances, road and miniature steam engines, cosplay and plenty of retail therapy!
Please note as a result of the current weather conditions in Sussex we will be operating an amended service on our narrow gauge railway this weekend (13th and 14th August).
Our locomotives will be diesel hauled. This decision falls in line with other heritage railways who have withdrawn or reduced the use of steam locomotive traction.
We apologise for any disappointment this might bring but these measures have been put in place to reduce the risk of trackside and locomotive fires.
Road Steam Engines and Miniature Steam Engines will still be running throughout the weekend.
‘Peldon’ our very special 1936 Fowler Resilient diesel-powered engine will be in service and is believed to be the only surviving working example of this locomotive.
What can visitors see and do at this event?
There will be performers including Box Hill Bedlam Morris Side (Saturday), Belly Funk Dance Troupe (Sunday), The Wattingers, Rapscallion, The Dark Design, Bear North, Humphrey & Maude, Dr Gray and Sheriif Ants Trepeneur who will be providing entertainment throughout the weekend.
Visitors are encouraged to dress up in Steampunk style, with plenty of photo opportunities around the Museum.
Retail therapy by specialist Steampunk traders.
Tickets must be pre-booked online for this event.
