Uckfield Mens shed @ Unit 14
Jul 29 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Uckfield Mens shed @ Unit 14 | Blackboys | England | United Kingdom

Men’s Sheds are a nationwide organisation that aim at dealing with the social isolation of men especially those who have retired although membership is open to all from 18+.  They have been set up to offer men the opportunity to meet others in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, to learn, practice or hone skills and to promote their mental health and wellbeing.

Men’ Sheds (or Sheds) are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, avoiding isolation, improving mental health, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.

Have you ever attended a model railway exhibition before? Well expect an array of tiny worlds, all expertly modelled and brought to life by the steam and diesel locomotives that wind their way along the tracks. It takes patience, time and skill to bring these fascinating layouts to life.

We have a great selection of Model Railways featuring including N gauge, O gauge, double O gauge and gauge 1 layouts from across the country.
To complement our displays, we also have several trade stands offering a variety of modelling products including engines, rolling stock, and local produce. Don’t forget you can also visit our railway shop where we have a great selection of products available from beginners sets to full layouts.

During this event, we are running a busy steam hauled service from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead Stations across the weekend.

60 plus 1 at the Bluebell Railway @ Bluebell Railway | England | United Kingdom

Help celebrate our achievements from over the last 60 years with a packed weekend of displays, activities, music, festivities and, of course, steam engines.

All our stations will be open for this event and a busy timetable will be running. Why not travel up and down the line, hop on and off at any of our stations, and enjoy all the Bluebell Railway has to offer!

Looking for that festival atmosphere? Head to Horsted Keynes Station and visit our events field to enjoy good food and live bands playing classics from across the last six decades. On Saturday we have steam services late into the evening and entertainment from local bands.

Exclusive access will be available each day to restricted areas across the railway including our carriage and wagon sheds, locomotive works and running sheds with guided tours throughout the weekend. Kids Kingdom will provide fun and games suitable for all ages. For the big kids, brake van rides and diesel driving taster experiences should appeal!
To top-off the weekend festivities, on Sunday afternoon we are planning a locomotive cavalcade of all our working engines.

Food and drink will be available to purchase on both days at Sheffield Park Station (Bessemer Arms and platform kiosk), Horsted Keynes Station (George V Buffet, and there will be an Ice Cream Van, Hog Roast, and Shepherd’s Hut), Kingscote Station (Well House for drinks, snacks and ice-cream), and East Grinstead Station (Grinsteade Buffet).

All event areas will be open until 9pm or until the last train departs from that Station. This will be a celebration of six decades of what Bluebell Railway does best!
