Llangollen Garden railway Festival

A fun filled day for everyone.

 COVID-19 outbreak

As we’re sure you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that the organisers have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Llangollen Garden Railway Festival again, due to take place on 15thMay 2021. While we know this is disappointing and frustrating, we are sure that you understand the reasons why we have taken this decision. 

 

When looking at the event industry as a whole, most of the larger events have now postponed until 2022 because of the uncertainty and the increased costs of putting on a show with the associated Covid regulation requirements. With this in mind, we have taken the decision to reschedule the event to Saturday 14th May 2022.


The event organisers are committed to putting on the best possible show next year making it a must for all large scale railway enthusiasts and a great day out for all the family. There will be lots of things to see and do from looking at one of the big display layouts or pick up a bargain at one of our many traders that how would be happy to help you or just sit down with friends and family having a cup tea from the cafe or something stronger from the bar. Don’t worry we didn’t forget the kids we hopefully will have a kids zone for them to play in and a ride on railway outside for them to take a ride. 

 

We hope you all keep safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all on the Saturday 14th May 2022, so please add the date in your diary.
