What's on at The Brickworks


Halloween Steam Up

Sunday 27th October, 11.00 - 4.00

The whole outside display area(s) will again be bulging with steam exhibits including resident and visiting full size traction engines, scaled miniature engines, stationary power plants, fairground organs etc. right down to table top steam model displays. The very popular traction engine trailer rides will run all day and it is hoped that the tractor/trailer rides ‘trialled’ at the October open day will also be run, having proved so popular.

A chance to immerse yourself in a Victorian engineering setting for the day, and to watch the grand parade of machines ‘chuff and hiss’ their way past you as they wend their way slowly around the site!   

Activities with a ghostly theme for children of all ages.

The museum will be in steam and both our large steam engines will be working away.

HNGRT will be running their trains and inside there is the museum itself, activities for children, craft stalls and live music.

The cafe will be serving light refreshments.  Adult £7, Concession £6, Children £4 and Family £18

Christmas at The Brickworks

Sunday 24th November, 11.00 - 4.00

Love the Christmas Market! One of our busiest events with lots of craft stalls all over the museum. There will be activities for children and Father Christmas has promised to call in! 

The popular Meccano exhibition will be back for this event.

The museum will be steamed-up, HNGRT will be running their trains and the cafe open.

We like to celebrate Christmas by reducing the entry prices to £4 per adult and free for a child. Parking is free, as always.

Father Christmas will be able to meet 150 children before he has to get back to the North Pole - it is a busy time of year. Tickets will be sold on a first come - first served basis. A visit costs £4 per child.
