The 44th Island Steam Show


Steam show 4

Bursting with surprises, the Island Steam Show is an action-packed event and great family day out!

There are bundles of fun in the main arena with The Sheep Show and Joseph Peace and his Red Hot Fire Show. Watch the silly traction engines games, be awe-inspired by Haven Falconry’s birds of prey and enjoy a variety of displays and attractions to keep the whole family entertained throughout the day!

These stunning shows in the main arena will make you gasp, cheer and laugh, while in our ‘Comedy & Entertainment’ arena Mr Alexander’s Travelling Show returns to enthrall and amuse and is accompanied by Martin Ordibans on the piano, plus there are humorous tales, comedy and oddball skills with Greg Chapman’s Condensed Histories. What’s more, there’s a terrific line-up of live bands and music to enjoy each day on the woodland stage.

Relish the sight of beautifully maintained traction engines, vintage cars, motorcycles and old wagons, or simply settle back for a steam train ride through the Island's unspoilt countryside. Browse around the fascinating stalls, pick up a bargain from the country crafts. There are opportunities to cool down with an ice cream or a glass of your favourite tipple from our Real Ale bar, and enjoy a good variety of refreshments.

The Island Steam Show will make your August bank holiday a weekend to remember!
