Classic rock ‘n’ roll covers band ‘Dr Syn’ will be providing musical entertainment at intervals throughout the day.
The Model Railway Exhibition will be open. This is possibly the largest and certainly the busiest Model Railway in England. Construction started in 1973 and took around five years to complete, first running for the public in May 1978.
Ales by the Rails will be open, which is an addition to the gardens of the End of the Line Restaurant. Stocking local alcoholic beers and ciders, it provides an opportunity to enjoy a drink and relax whilst looking over the unique panoramic landscape.
Tickets for the day cost £24 for adults, £12 for children, and £12 for concessions, Further information can be found on the railway’s website at https://www.rhdr.org.uk/special-events/father-s-day-model-trains-and-beer-festival/
