Cotswold Festival of Steam 2020



Saturday, Sunday and Monday 23rd, 24th and 25th May 2020

At least EIGHT locomotives in steam!

Special guests planned for another amazing Late May Bank Holiday weekend

The small team behind the Cotswold Festival of Steam is planning yet another outstanding show with at least three visiting locomotives planned along with all of the 'home fleet'.  An intensive timetable will allow plenty of opportunity to ride behind all of the locomotives and some trains will feature double-heading and interesting combinations of motive power.  Once again, engines that have never visited the railway are being invited.


It's a bit too early to give any clues as to what the team hopes will be running but you may be sure of an exceptional show with the usual attractions, including the North Gloucestershire Narrow Gauge Railway which could feature up to three locos in steam; trade and preservation stands; traction engines; beer tent; 'behind the scenes' visits to the railway's large Carriage & Wagon workshops and much more.  The team also hopes that the freight will once again feature in the timetables.


Online tickets will be offered early in the New Year  but make a note in your diary now - clear the decks and don't miss it!
