I notice that today, Sunday 24th November 2019, there’s a rather fun looking Christmas Craft Fair being staged at Chasewater Railway, as part of the celebrations for the start of this year’s Santa Special trains.
A Very Victorian Christmas with Chase Handmade runs from 11am until 7pm at Brownhills West Station (Use the Chasewater main entrance from the A5 and Pool Road) and there will be loads of stalls selling quality hand-made items, the noted tea rooms and of course the wonderful atmosphere provided by a working preserved steam railway.
It’s sure to be a festive treat!
The organisers said:
A very special event to herald in the start of the Christmas season and the Chasewater Railway Santa Specials!
A Chase Handmade handmade only craft fair featuring the finest local artisan makers perfect for those special gifts, festive food and drinks by the Sidings Tea Room and a heavenly host of other Yuletime entertainments!
Chasewater Railway is a wonderful attraction with regular passenger services at weekends and during school holidays, featuring two excellent cafes and a fascinating museum that chronicles not just railway history, but that of our area and industry.
The whole thing is staffed by helpful and friendly volunteers who are always ready to chat and talk about the railway and rolling stock.
At Brownhills west station there are also a lovely model railway, plus a couple of great vintage and collectible stalls. The railway itself has a shop selling books, rail models, toys and other merchandise.
You can check their website here – trains run this and every weekend from 11am to 4pm with the museum, cafes and stations open earlier.
