Summer Steam Show (CANCELLED)

Saturday 15 August to Sunday 16 August 2020
10.30am - 5pm

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 Summer Steam Show has been cancelled.

Join us at our annual Summer Steam Show on Saturday 15 August – Sunday 16 August! Celebrate all modes of transport and learn about the impact they had on the rural community from the introduction of steam into farming practice to the novelty of vintage cars speeding through the South Downs valley. This two day Summer hit will be packed with an army of steam engines, World War vehicles, fire engines, vintage wagons and caravans and classic cars and motorbikes to name just a few; not to mention lots of family fun with miniature steam engines, model boats and railways and a Victorian steam powered fairground.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram (@wealddownmuseum) to stay in touch.


Regular Museum admission prices apply and include admission to the show and Museum (free for Annual Members). Children aged 4 years and under enter free of charge. There is ample free parking.

The show will open at 10.30am and close promptly at 5.00pm. The Museum itself will also close at the end of the show for safety reasons.
