This year’s 2 day festival is the weekend of 16th to 17th April 2017 , good weekend if it’s dry but plenty to see indoors if it’s not. It’s worth a visit just for the bread pudding from the NAAFI catering van !
Obviously the onsite steam railway will run all weekend , there will also be a huge show of classic cars and heavy goods vehicles.There is also a classic steam fairground and an assortment of Kentish food and drink.The whole event ends each day with a Steam Finale. The railway volunteers have spent all winter doing up some of the rolling stock.
Look at my guide to local hotels and bed and breakfast if you want to book a hotel, book the Airbnb in officers Terrace if you want to stay onsite !
