Local beer will be available - as well as cider, gin and wine. Traders of local bottled spirits, many made right here in Yorkshire, will also be in attendance across the weekend. 

There will also be live music, face painting and children’s entertainment, making the weekend festival perfect for families. 

The festival runs from 10am to 10pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.  Tickets are priced at £10 per adult and £5 per child. Each ticket includes an offer of unlimited train rides.
