Father's Day Whisky Festival – Sun 16 June

Tickets | Masterclasses | Whisky and Spirits List | Soft Drinks | Food

Our Father's Day Whisky Festival is back. This year, it will take place in the atmospheric surrounds of the Page's Park Engine Shed. No train tickets are required to attend the festival, but entry is free if you have one, with spirits prices starting at just £1. Why not treat dad to a ride on a steam train and a few drams?

We'll be operating our enhanced service. The festival will open on departure of the first train of the day at 1030 and last pour will be at 1600, with a small amount of 'drinking up' time.

The festival will be hosted by knowledgeable staff who will be able to help you choose the right whisky for you, and to answer any questions you may have. We know not everyone likes whisky, so there will also be a small selection of other spirits. Plus soft drinks will be available for children and drivers.

Tickets

With train ticket for 16 June: free

Without train ticket: £2

Advanced ticket sales have now ended. Tickets will only be available on the door. Accompanied children will be admitted into the festival area for free.
