The music! The fashion! The trains!
We've transported the railway back to 1967 to celebrate all things Sixties. The Beatles and Rolling Stones are in the charts, Carnaby Street is 'swinging', the pound has been devalued, and Sandie Shaw has just won the Eurovision Song Contest.
For this weekend we've imagined that the age of steam survived on the Isle of Wight into 1967. Six Ivatt 2MT locomotives have been shipped to the Island to replace the elderly O2s. For this weekend only we'll be renaming our two Ivatt locomotives continuing the Island tradition of naming locomotives after local towns and villages.
Spend your day enjoying the music of the Sixties with live entertainment around the station. Dressing up in clothes of the era is positively encouraged (Don't worry if you don’t want to, all are welcome). Our Barn Café will be open, get a drink from our lovely selection of hot drinks and alcoholic drinks, sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
There'll be live music on our main stage throughout the day.
The 5 O' Clock Shadows
Local band, The Hillmans, featuring Dick Taylor, have been a favourite at our previous 1960s weekends.
