Cheers to SVR! 

This year sees the very first SVR Oktoberfest, which takes place at the Engine House in Highley on the weekend of 13 and 14 October, bringing lashings of Bavarian beer, Germanic food and Teutonic frolics to the Severn Valley Railway. You’re invited to dress up and bop along to classic Bavarian-style oompah music, browse the street food stalls for the best wurst, and purchase your own giant beer stein to sample a range of European beers.

Severn Valley Railway will be running a full service of steam and diesel trains, so you can start your day at any station you choose. And remember, Bridgnorth Station’s Railwayman’s Arms and Kidderminster Station’s King and Castle are both CAMRA award-winning pubs if you’d like to carry on the beer theme… Visit or call 01562 757900 for details and for tickets – booking is essential.
