The Lavender Line
We are very excited to announce that the entry forms for the Lavender Line’s 2015 Gala weekend are now available to download online via our website or on our Loco department Facebook page. The forms will also be available in hard copy from our Cinders Buffet located by the leaflets.
This year’s Gala weekend will be taking place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October. With such popularity at last year’s event we have plans to expand this year’s event by splitting the visiting vehicles into two groups. We are expecting a large number of steam engines to visit and therefore we have decided to reserve the railways hard standing car park for visiting road steam and commercial vehicles. With this in mind we are now going to ensure all classic cars are together where visitors can enjoy the sights and sounds of some of the beautiful visiting vehicles set to join us. To ensure all the classic cars are together we have now reserved a section in the neighbouring field behind the Laughing Fish pub where all the vehicles can line up on the hedge row which adjoins the railways hard standing car park.
To simplify procedures this years entry forms will consist of two separate forms, one will be for steam engines and commercial vehicles and the other form will be for classic cars/ Motorcycles only.
With such a successful event last year we are hoping to build on some of the great positives we received. In fact on the Sunday of last years Gala we were overwhelmed with the amount of visiting vehicles with not a single space left in the railways car park!
The other half of the field behind the Laughing Fish pub will be used as public car parking which will be completely separate from the classic car displays.
Keep an eye out for more information on this years ever growing Gala weekend over the coming months.
Closing date for both entry forms will be Tuesday 1st September
