The Brickworks Museum
at Bursledon

What's on at The Brickworks


Trains, Trains, Trains

24th September, 11.00 - 4.00

 

The September Steam-up Sunday is one where we hand the event over to Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust for the day. They have a chance to show their trains off and invite friends in as well. Inside there will be train displays and stalls selling train related bits and bobs.

The museum will be all steamed-up and the old machinery turning, the cafe running and activities for children.

Halloween Steam Up

29th October, 11.00 - 4.00

One of our biggest events of the year. All our resident traction engines come home to roost for the winter having spent the summer touring all over the country. Friends bring their engines along as well and it is usually a really good turn out.

The museum will be in steam including our two John Wood's and Son stationary engines and the little vertical engine that runs the country estate brickworks.

Hamphsire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust will be running their trains and inside there will be all kinds of activities for children including our popular Halloween activities, craft stalls and music.

 

 


An Edwardian Worker's Christmas

26th November, 11.00 - 4.00

A different Christmas event this year and to celebrate the changes we are droping our entry price to £2 per person (£1 for children). Lots of really lovely activities with an Ewardian theme. We will have our Christmas market upstairs, live music and, of course, a visit from Father Christmas (not included in the entry price). 

This is one of our Steam-Up Sundays so the museum engines will all be working, trains running, cafe serving as always.

It can be cold in the brickworks in the winter so wrap up warm!
