Next Post


Our season is coming to an end and wow! What a sensational summer it has been. While we reminisce over the past few months, we'd first and foremost like to say a tremendous thank you to all who have been part of creating so many unforgettable memories. BresSteam; our annual Steam Punk festival began our season with a punch! This weekend was an incredible display of Victorian costumes, creativity and inventions of their idealistic future. With our engines riding in full steam alongside it truly brought Bressingham alive!

Another superb highlight of the year was presenting our excellent Dad's Army Fire Engine in a sea of established Norfolk business's, at The Norfolk Show. We are proud to have experienced crowds of excited families, schools and even Army Soldiers eagerly climb aboard, take photos and give us such wonderful feedback. The show was a brilliant experience for us and we hope to be back again next year.

Our summer has been wonderfully packed with family filled events, including "Steam in Miniature" which was a raging success, revealing a bigger surprise broadcasting the day on Facebook Live for the world to see, in the comfort of your home. Special guest appearances such as Fireman Sam at our Bressingham 999 Emergency Services day and Familiar faces Postman Pat and Jess also came to visit bringing a tremendous buzz to the atmosphere.

As well as fantastic entertainment dazzling all of Bressingham, our mighty Martello 662 has been revived back to life. Our committed volunteers, who dedicated their lives to ensure this well-loved engine would be running one day managed to complete our restoration project, which has been an incredible achievement for us. We greatly appreciate those who donated to our fund. Watch out for the official relaunch of both Martello and Gwynedd early in the 2017 season We hope this will be a magical day for us as we witnessed the glory of these magnificent beasts of steam back in action once more!

We can honestly say this has been an emotional summer for everyone and one we will always remember. We are honored to have so many supporting friends and guests who have stayed alongside us during this magical journey. Although this season is coming to an end, we are now ready for an even greater Halloween and Christmas!

Keep your eyes peeled as the adventure has only just begun!
