CELEBRATING OUR RAILWAY’S BIRTHDAY – THIRD TIME LUCKY?
After two failed attempts last year (for obvious reasons) we are once again working with Stockton Borough Council on a major event to celebrate the birthday of the Stockton & Darlington Railway – which this year will be the 196th !
The event will take place in Stockton High Street on Saturday 25 September 2021 – the closest Saturday to the actual birthday.
The centre-piece of our event will be a giant marquee in Stockton High Street which will host a specialist railway-themed market, with circa 30 traders / exhibitors present, along with model railways, some narrow-gauge locomotives, and other related stalls.
Peripheral events are planned for outside the marquee, and in the days running up to the main event, there will be performances of a new street theatre production called “Beer & Bread” which will tell the un-told story of the navvies who built the railway.
We’re also working on a live music event the evening before our big day, extra appearances on the day from the famous Stockton Flyer, and a locally brewed Festival Beer.
More details as things are confirmed will appear on our web site and Facebook Group page nearer the time, but for now – please save the date – Saturday 25 September !
