Pistons & Pumps Festival Fri 15 to Sun 17 September

During the GCR Beer Festival, our Pistons & Pumps Festival will also be in full swing at Quorn & Woodhouse station.

With Winter around the corner, we look forward to seeing the Vintage & Classic vehicles from yesteryear for their final outing of the year. Whether steam, car, commercial, tractor or bike, all are welcome at Quorn & Woodhouse station for the three day event. We will have a road run into Quorn village on Saturday afternoon alongside bands on Friday and Saturday nights and the largest selection of guest beers and ciders ever in the Tin Shed Shanty Bar.

Entry to the site during the day is free with visitor parking on the field car park next to the station.

Have you a Vintage or Classic vehicle you would like to bring, book it in at marketing@gcrailway.co.uk as soon as possible,  we are filling up fast.

Tin Shed Shanty Bar opening hours:
