Llangollen Garden railway Festival

A fun filled day for everyone.

 COVID-19 outbreak

The COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented global challenge. As a result of COVID-19  we sadly had to postpone both our 2020 events. Therefore we have decided to push ahead  and try to put the show on next May 15th 2021. Until the current situation passes it is almost impossible to say that MAY 2021 will go ahead but we will do everything in our power to make it happen. A skeleton team will remain focused on delivering you the show when it is safe to do so.
