Music Trains

The Music Trains provide an unusual venue for a variety of live music acts and there is time for a stop at Batemans Brewery in Wainfleet where passengers are offered a warm welcome and refreshments at their Windmill Bar.

About Music Trains

Normal scheduled service trains are used for the Music Train events between Sleaford and Wainfleet. A normal rail ticket is required for the journey (current train fares apply) and can be purchased as usual from stations/conductor on train.

Passengers can take advantage of GroupSave ticket availability. There is no additional charge above the current train fare to join a Music Train event.
