The Railway Folk at IW Steam Railway


Railway folk

Having previously sharpened their skills with the farmyard the Railway Folk are far from daunted when a travelling Circus rolls up at Havenstreet and decide to stay for a few days. Whilst Dusty the Station Master tries to take control Max the Guard gets tangled in the Big Top, Nipper is digging out his stilts and Derek sees himself as Ringmaster.

Mr Beeching, of course, is already counting the cost and wishing he could perform a vanishing trick!

ROLL UP, ROLL UP for the best value in town! Three days of fun and chaos with Circus Sensible and the Railway Folk - who are guaranteed to be anything but sensible. Take your seat under the Big Top, practice your circus skills and just enjoy the entertainment, all included in the price of your ticket.

Featuring Jenny, Tamp, Ratchet, Burt, Max, Penny, Dusty, Nipper, Mrs Cumberpatch, Old George, Mr Beeching, SmokeBox the Station and Basil the Station Mouse, this host of captivating characters and imaginative street theatre will appeal to everyone aged from 2 to 102 years!

There’s all sorts of fun and activities for families to enjoy (see entertainments listing).

Entrance to the Haven Falconry Bird of Prey Centre is also included in your ticket price.
