A RAILWAY museum is giving visitors the chance to travel back in time for a nostalgic look at the lives of wartime Britain next weekend.

The East Anglian Railway Museum is holding a Steamy Vintage Encounter on Sunday, May 19.

Visitors can enjoy the sounds of Fox, Wiggle and Sass, who are set to serve up their usual combination of great wartime songs with plenty of attitude.

They are performing in the historic Victorian Goods Shed, where there will be dancing and live music.

The Galaxy Big Band are also playing on the day and visitors will have the chance to have a go at one of the swing-jive or Lindy-hop workshops.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the scary teacher who features in the museum’s evacuee drama lessons and soak up the atmosphere with a magician and bubble artist.

There will be a variety of vintage stalls for visitors to browse, as well as classic cars on display and an opportunity to get a vintage make-over, complete with hairstyling.

The railway museum is also running its ‘Taster for a Tenner’ attraction where visitors can have a go at driving one of the iconic diesel locomotives. There is also the chance to have a ride on the pump trolley.

The museum’s pint-sized on-site pub, the Viaduct Tavern, will be open, or visitors can relax in the beautiful railway dining car with a vintage afternoon tea.

The museum will be open from 10am till 4.30pm on May 19.

Tickets are £10 (£5 children, and under-fours go free). There is a 10 per cent discount if tickets are bought online at earm.co.uk/steamy-vintage-encounter.
