I notice that today, Sunday, the 24th June 2012, there’s a rather fun looking vintage event being staged at Chasewater Railway by Burntwood-based Always Red Events. It seems like a rather fun thing, and you can do Brownhills Canal Festival on the same day.
I’ll leave the organisers to tell you all about it. I’ll certainly be checking it out…
We’ll Meet Again is a vintage and family day out at Chasewater Railway on 24th June. As well as being a wonderful day out for families and vintage fans, the event aims to raise money for Chasewater Railway and raise the profile of local businesses.
One of the major attractions within the local area, Chasewater Railway is situated in the beautiful Chasewater Country Park in the ‘Heart of Mercia’. It is staffed entirely by volunteers and survives on charitable funds. We aim with this event to raise the railways profile with in the local and regional community, increasing thier footfall.
We’ll Meet Again, with free entrance and free parking, has 50 exhibitors for affordable and boutique vintage clothing, jewellery, accessories, homeware, art/collectables, crafts gifts and hand made items to be housed in the railway heritage centre plus outdoor space for performance, children’s entertainment and further exhibitors. General music and announcements will me made by aardvark.dj and the event will be recorded for a promotional package,and will be launched online (please enquire for further information) please take a look at our current promo. The Always Red Events official photographer will also be on site.
Its not all about the shopping though! We intend to make this event a grand day out for all the family, children’s games, competitions, a bouncy castle, giant Jenga, Connect Four and entertainment with Jolly Joey for the children. For the adults we have the divine Laura Mai performing some 40s classics,Speakeasy Cocktails bars will be working some mixology magic with themed cocktails and mocktails made the old fashioned way.

A day at the railway of course wouldn’t be complete with out taking you back to the age of steam and there will be a full service of trains running through out the day, With their beautiful original 1st class carriages it really is a step back in time and a fabulous vintage day out.
