Famous steam engines at a Bluebell Railway Gala, a Framfield Road and New Town open day and an Italian themed dining night at The Grove, Blackboys. These are some of the events coming up in the Uckfield area and there’s lots more going on too.
Two famous steam engines will be seen today and over the weekend at a gala at the Bluebell Railway.
A special intensive timetable will be operating over the weekend so there will be lots of opportunities to travel behind the magnificent giants, Britannia and Mayflower, and watch them in action.
Tomorrow there’s an Framfield Road and New Town open day at Bridge Cottage for anybody who would like to contribute information about the area to an exhibition coming up in January.
Tomorrow night there will be themed dining at The Grove Farmhouse Cafe in Blackboys with Italian fare on the menu.
During the week
During the week there will be free electric blanket testing at Uckfield Fire Station and a Hearing Resource Bus is coming to town offering hearing screening tests and demonstrations of assistive equipment.
Next weekend the Uckfield Model Railway Club exhibition takes place on Saturday and Sunday at Uckfield Civic Centre. There will be more than a dozen high quality model railway layouts to enjoy, and more.
On Saturday night Vintage Shindigs present Nashville Nights at Framfield with funds raised going to the village school.
