SSAGO goes to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Beer Festival

What is it?

SSROB (the SSAGO Strategic Rail Operations Branch) presents an exciting trip to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Beer Festival, an exciting weekend full of beer, gin and steam trains! Experience a variety of beers at stations across the railway and even on board the trains!

The SSROB-organised event will take place from Friday 14/10/2022-Sunday 16/10/2022.

Throughout the weekend, we'll visit the Beer Festival (no need to drink if you just want to enjoy the trains) on the Saturday. We'll be staying in the nearby Riddlesden Scout Hut on the Friday and Saturday nights and walking to/from the Beer Festival on Saturday.
