Visit the 39th annual Island Steam Show

The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is pleased to announce it will be hosting the 39th annual Island Steam Show next month, with a range of attractions on offer to make it the perfect day out for all the family.

Running from August 23rd to 26th, the event is being held at the steam railway's Haven Street station and will be an extravaganza of excitement for kids of all ages.

Featuring traditional fairground rides, live stunts displays from Real Stunts, Bernie Bennett and Joseph Peace - including tightrope walking and fire eating -  a number of family-oriented stage shows, a Red Indian village and live music on the Woodland Stage.

Parades are also set to take place throughout the day, so visitors had best have their cameras ready at all times, as there will always be something to catch the eye.

Central to the day's activities will be the engineering showcase of the railway's preserved steam engines, with a number of island jaunts being offered from the station for festivalgoers to enjoy.

Covering up to five miles of some of the Isle of Wight's most beautiful landscapes, these getaways provide a relaxing and enjoyable break in the day and give time for mums and dads to simply sit back and soak up the atmosphere of travelling in luxury.

Speaking of mums and dads, upon their return they might like to head along to one of the many refreshment tents that will erected, as more than 50 real ales and a range of non-alcoholic food and drink will be available for them to enjoy.

Tickets for the show will cost £12 for adults if booked in advance or £14 on the day, while children up to 15 years old can get in for free.

A timetable for steam railway trips can be found on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway website and parking for visitors is free. It promises to be a real fun-packed event for all comers and is sure to provide some fantastic memories of any trip to the Isle of the Wight.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801619296-ADNFCR
