SOUTH DEVON RAILWAY ~ Easter Fair
30th March to 2nd April 2018
The South Devon Railway will be having an Easter Fair over the full Easter weekend of Friday 30th March and Monday 2nd April 2018.
As well as our heritage train service, with FOUR locomotives in operation on each day, be sure to visit the display at Buckfastleigh for a fascinating selection of heritage vehicles on display.
The Refreshment Rooms at Buckfastleigh are open for everything from a snack to a hot meal, and be sure to call in to the adjacent Gifts & Models shop and view the model railways.
A round trip ticket is valid for travel all day, on all our trains, so you can ride as many trains as much as you like! See if you can get a ride behind each of the four locomotives in operation today! Be sure to also take a ride on the heritage GWR auto trains which are in operation all day, including, for part of the day, the ‘auto sandwich’, where the locomotive will be sandwiched between two auto carriages! The views of the line from the front vestible are not to be missed!
To complement the trains, there will be a selection of vintage cars and motor bikes on display in our gardens at Buckfastleigh station.
Our red London Routemaster bus will also be running around Buckfastleigh and Ashburton as usual. For more information, see the Omnibus Timetable.

4th – 6th May 2018
The clock’s ticking. With plenty of Bikes, Incredible Bands across 2 stages, Beer & Cider tent, Traders and so much more. The BMAD Festival has grown into one of the best Biker weekends in the UK.
BMAD is, probably, the biggest biker, music and beer festival in the South West of England. Now in its 13th year and better than ever before. With plenty of bikes, bands and beers to keep everyone happy; and with food, traders and the wonderful beach – it’s likely to be the perfect weekend.
We have put together an incredible line up of some of the top bands in the UK & Europe, including Hells Bells, Stop Stop, Departed, Dizzy Lizzy, 4th Street and plenty more . . There are two stages this year as well.
All the money raised at both the Wednesday Bike Nights and the Festival goes to our chosen charities.
