Steam Up 2017 will be on Saturday 19th August 2017.
This annual August event, where monies raised help support local charities, features steam engines (who stop off on their way to the Great Dorset Steam Fayre), real ales, ciders, a BBQ/Stir fry/Curry and live music – a winning combination! The 2016 Steam Up took place on the 20th August. We had over 50 engines ranging from showmans engines to minatures. Here is the plan for this year to date (subject to change):
Friday 18th evening – live music starting at 7.30pm from Sixteen String Jack along with the real ale & cider fest.
Saturday 19th – steam engines will be arriving all day and evening, BBQ, live music from 2pm ’til late, bouncy castle, craft stalls, tombola, Real Ale and & cider fest.
