This is an alcohol free family oriented event following COVID guidelines for a Tier One event.

There will be a programme of singers and musicians throughout the day to complement the steam train rides (including night runs), the wonder of the giant steam traction engines, and the curiosities  of heritage machinery. 

The Knights Templar will be demonstrating their weaponry skills, the blacksmith will be forging, and the Fergie Tractors will be on display. 

The kids will enjoy rides, face painting and joining in with the tug of war against a steam roller. Who will win this time?

The highlight of the evening will be a professionally presented fireworks display and bonfire, at 8:45pm. Toast some marshmallows with us and join in the “sparkler wave”.

“This is the second year that we have presented this winter festival we are so pleased to bring the community together in this event and proud of the support that the town has given. The evening offers a fun filled, family friendly event and we were very pleased with how it went last year.  Over 700 people made the trip to Sheffield to enjoy our first event and everyone involved had a ball.  Night steam train runs are very rare now in Australia and I urge everyone to come and participate.” – Mr Martin, Director of Sheffield Steam and Heritage.
