Steam Shanty Evenings

Posted in Events by cata on 12th January 2024

Join us for shanty songs, pasty’s, pints, and a trip on our steam train this 2024! Being a hit to our passengers last year, the Lemonaires (from Falmouth) are back again to perform a variety of songs about mining, fishing, farming and shanties.

Arrive at Bodmin General Station for the event start at 7 p.m., where you will be greeted by The Lemonaires and their first set of shanty songs. Pick up a drink and watch as they fill the station with their songs. Board the train after their first set for a single line trip down to Boscarne Junction, step off the train or listen from your seat as the acapella group begin their second set. Steam your way back to Bodmin General for the second half of the second set. Don’t forget to pick up a lyric sheet handout so you can sing along too.

Your ticket includes a Cornish pasty and a drink on arrival. All tickets must be booked in advance, and remember to choose your pasty type when paying for them.

DATES: Thursday 4th of April and Thursday 20th of June
