All Aboard the Evening Express Posted On 17 September 2021

Sample delicious Cheese and Wine aboard Nene Valley Railway


Nene Valley Railway is the UK’s leading international steam attraction, based at Wansford Station and covering the stations of Overton (for Ferry Meadows), Orton Mere, Yarwell Junction, and Peterborough.

As both a living heritage railway, which is tended to by a loyal band of volunteers and a thriving attraction for the public to enjoy all year round, Nene Valley Railway offers the chance to experience the thrill of riding a steam engine, learn about the railway’s history, and explore the picturesque surroundings of the Nene Valley area. This weekend you can go one step further and experience a delightful evening on entertainment, cheese and wine whilst travelling through the Nene Valley, hauled by a heritage steam train.

Musical accompaniment for the evening will be provided by Dan Hughes, a musician, songwriter, guitarist and producer. Dan studied for two years at the highly-regarded music institute BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) and has supported Fleetwood Mac’s guitarist on tour.

The cheese and wine evening express will leave Wansford Station at 7pm on Saturday September 18th. A table for two costs £78 and includes one bottle of wine as well as a cheese and crackers box. A table for three costs £117 and includes a cheese and crackers box and 2 bottles of wine. Tables of four cost £156 and include 2 bottles of wine as well as cheese and crackers for four. If you would like to sit near another party that can be arranged, but you need to let the organisers know in advance.

If you’d like to get in the mood ahead of the evening, why not listen to Dan Hughes on YouTube for a sneak peak of what’s to come… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWh_rCvmnOo
