Festivals that Celebrate our Railways

Stay on the right track with beer festivals that celebrate our railways - here's an event that offers the chance to do both!

Market Bosworth Rail Ale Festival

21-23 July 2017

Eight years ago the first Rail Ale Festival was held in the Shackerstone Station, but has now grown into an official CAMRA beer festival running alongside a vintage rally.

The event takes place in and around the Goods Shed at Market Bosworth Station with ales also served from the Griddle Car bar on the trains.

Visitors can expect to see an eclectic mix of historic vehicles, including 10 live steam road locomotives, miniature traction engines and vintage commercial vehicles, with trains in operation on the Friday afternoon.

Family friendly during the daytime, the festival also boasts a children's bouncy castle, fairground organ and entertainment.
