Working traction engines ~ Children’s Rides ~ Bar ~ Live Music ~ Trade Stalls

Step back in time for a weekend of steam-powered demonstrations and vintage fairground fun. Traction engines, road rollers, showman’s engines and more – bringing the Isle of Purbeck to life with recreations of a bygone age.

Located near Corfe Castle, experience road steam and rail steam together for our annual event in the Isle of Purbeck with rides and stalls suitable for all ages.

Don’t forget to wear your flat cap!

If you fancy dressing up for the event, feel free to dress up in the period attire, whether that’s a showman’s outfit or steam train drivers ‘Bib and Brace’ and soak up the atmosphere of the weekend.

Enjoy an ice cream or a traditional cream tea in the field before visiting the beer tent to sample some popular ales and ciders.

Steam-hauled passenger trains will be operating throughout the weekend. In addition an evening heritage diesel service will operate on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Bring the whole family for a super steam-filled day out!
