We're planning an even better Cotswolds Food and Drink Fayre this year, with a larger marquee and more trains.
Trains will run to the Green Timetable with two steam trains and a diesel hauled train operating all day along the full length of the line bewteen Broadway and Cheltenham Race Course stations. Plus, if you are starting at the Cheltenham Racecourse end of the line, so that you can fully benefit from all that's going on at Toddington, we are running an extra diesel railcar train from Cheltenham Race Course station on the Saturday and Sunday mornings which will depart Cheltenham at 9.45am, calling at Winchcombe and arriving at Toddington at 10.22.
We will have more than 40 exhibitors and a larger marquee than last year. There will be keenly priced and well-packaged gifts from the Fayre that will make ideal Christmas presents. See the Picture Gallery with action from last year's event.
The Fayre will be held in the Toddington Station car park and free parking and free admission to the Fayre will apply again this year. Visitors can also enjoy a trip along the line to Broadway, Winchcombe and Cheltenham Race Course stations at normal ticket prices. GWRT Members' and GWST Shareholders' vouchers will all be valid.
Examples of Cotswolds and regional food varieties will include local cheeses and chutneys, honey and jams, puddings, pies, cakes, pastries, biscuits, bacon, sausages, sausage rolls, gluten-free and vegetarian options, chillies and spices, herbs, mustards and oils, chocolates and cookies, fruit juices and yoghurts, milk and butter, ciders, perries and beers, gins and wines, and creative hand-made ready meals - all at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway’s Toddington Station.
So, prepare your taste buds
