Wild West Weekend

Following from last year’s successful event, the Wild West will return to the Railway on Saturday/Sunday 27/28th July.

Settlers will be setting up camp at Kemsley Down for the whole weekend to share stories of the old west. Let’s start the summer holidays with a bang!

About the re-enactors:

We are a group of re-enactors based in the South of England, our members have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
The group has several round-ups each year with our tents and props as great scene setters. We are all volunteers and love to strive to learn and bring to life the history of 19th century America.
Our aims are to entertain and educate the public and our members in the history of the American Wild West.
