Visitors can expect guest model railway layouts, visiting locomotives on the Beer Heights Light Railway providing double-headed passenger trains and demonstration goods trains, and radio controlled SM-32 live steam model locos. On the Sunday there will be a naming ceremony for one of the visiting locos.

The Pecorama gardens will offer shows from Elfic the Jester on the Sunday and Ben the Master Juggler on the Monday, piano music to accompany cream teas on the restaurant terrace and children’s face painting in the marquee.

Margaret Edmonds, author of the Teddy Mac series of children’s books will be on site both days for story reading, book signing and colouring competitions. Admission is £7 for adults, £6.50 for senior citizens and £5 for children aged four to 16.
