Beamish Great War Steam Fair
Steam Event
Start : Thursday 11th of April 2019
End : Sunday 14th of April 2019
Join us for our annual (and famous) steam fair, with a First World War focus, the Great War Steam Fair promises to be a fascinating event. This fantastic four-day event is set to feature a whole host of road vehicles, engines and trains from the period up to 1918 in spectacular action around the museum.

The extraordinary line-up of around 120 exhibits includes steam locomotives, around 26 road steam vehicles and up to 80 motor vehicles, such as motorcycles, cars and lorries and a fire engine or two! There will be a real sense of the roads and railways of the Home Front during the Great War, including a fine selection of military vehicles.

Our Narrow Gauge and Colliery Railways will be in operation plus there will be passenger steam train rides from Rowley Station.

Across the museum there will be First World War reenactors with fascinating displays and stories to tell, helping us to set the scene during this thought provoking event.
