Howard Brother’s Fair comes to Beamish!

12th November 2009

This coming weekend marks the start of Beamish’s Christmas season, and if you want to know more about the coming arrival of Father Christmas, markets and the snow covered grotto then have a look at the museum website.
However, far more exciting to those of a more mechanical persuasion is the imminent arrival of the Howard Brother’s steam gallopers and Fowler Showmen’s engine ‘Renown'(as I write I am glancing out of the window awaiting their appearance!). We’ve hired these for this weekend only, to launch our festivities in traditional style. They will be running on Saturday and Sunday only so please come along if you want to see this spectacular site!

I’ll post some more photos over the weekend, but as a taster here are a couple of shots of their gallopers and Renown when they appeared at the Herrington Steam Rally a few years ago…
