There are 5 days of continuous passenger workings this week starting on Wednesday with our midweek diesel railcar service which, once again, will feature our Class 101 diesel multiple unit.
One of the North of England’s best Beer & Music Festivals starts on Thursday at 12.30 and continues right through to Sunday evening with train services operating Thursday – Saturday until close of business late into the night and until early evening on Sunday when the Festival will close for another year. The services will be operated each day as follows.
This popular event returns this weekend to once again tickle the taste buds of the discerning ale drinker with approximately 150 beers (mostly real ales) from all over the country to choose from. Cider and wine drinkers will also be able to have their thirst quenched with a wonderful selection of fine wines and ciders.
New for 2017 we will also have a selection of artisan gin available at Oxenhope and a ‘Cocktail & Gin Shack’ available at Ingrow.
Add in Music (Friday – Sunday) in the Exhibition Hall at Oxenhope and in the marquee at Ingrow and the stage is set for another excellent Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Beer and Music Festival.
The Festival opens on Thursday at 12.30 with a diesel multiple train service between Keighley, first train at 12.25, & Oxenhope, first train at 13.00. Steam and mainline diesel services operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In past years we have had special beers specifically brewed for the Festival and this year is no exception. We will have beers brewed specially for the event from Kirkstall, Ossett and Timothy Taylor’s breweries, and these include:
Kirkstall – ‘Worth Valley Pilsner’ (ABV tba) – a cask conditioned Pilsner lager
Ossett ‘Express’ (4.3%) – a spicy golden bitter
Timothy Taylor’s ‘KWVR 150th Anniversary Ale’ (5.3%) – a strong English ale based on a brown ale, with a real depth of flavour.
