60 Plus 1 at Bluebell Railway | 6th-8th August 2021 | Sheffield Green, Uckfield
60 Plus 1 at Bluebell Railway near Uckfield from 6th-8th August 2021, a belated diamond anniversary weekend of festivities celebrating over 60 years of Bluebell Railway.
Bluebell Railway turned 60 years old in 2020, so come and join us for our belated diamond anniversary event.
Help celebrate our achievements over the last 60 years with a packed weekend of displays, activities, music, festivities, and of course, steam engines.
All our stations will be open for this event and a busy timetable will be running. Why not travel up and down the line, hop on and off at any of our stations, and enjoy all the Bluebell Railway has to offer!
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.
Food and drink will be available to purchase on both days at Sheffield Park Station (Bessemer Arms and platform kiosk), Horsted Keynes Station (George V Buffet, and there will be an Ice Cream Van, Hog Roast, and Shepherd’s Hut), Kingscote Station (Well House for drinks, snacks and ice-cream), and East Grinstead Station (Grinsteade Buffet).
All event areas will be open until 9 pm or until the last train departs from that Station.
60 Plus 1 at Bluebell Railway will be a celebration of six decades of what Bluebell Railway does best!
