FULL STEAM AHEAD FOR LEIGH ARMS PARTY
Final preparations are underway at the Leigh Arms, Little Leigh as this popular country pub gears up to host its 12th spectacular annual Steam Party.
The regular fixture on the steam calendar will this year take place on the weekend of 1st and 2nd October. Everybody is welcome and it is free entry for all.
The Steam Party will bring together a superb collection of steam engines and vintage vehicles along with steam boats and the world famous steam tug ‘the kerne’ on the adjacent River Weaver.
The pub licensee Jo Higham says: “It’s a great weekend for everybody whether they are steam enthusiasts or just want to enjoy the atmosphere of the steam and smoke.”
“The Steam Party is generally regarded as the last event of its type in the season so everybody makes a huge effort to have their engines, boats and vehicles looking their best. Many exhibitors will also be wearing period costumes.”
Perfectly located for the event on the A49 and close to the famous Acton swing bridge, the colourful event attracts hundreds of visitors from across the region and beyond.
“We aim to make the party enjoyable for all, with other exhibits including intricate scale models of steam engines as well as expecting a beautiful bow top gypsy caravan.”
“Of course the Leigh Arms will be open and serving Robinsons cask beer throughout the weekend. And as fires burn in the steam boilers we will be ready to quench thirsts and tempt your taste buds with our mouth watering specials and traditional home cooked food,” said Jo.
For those who are interested in exhibiting at the Steam Party please contact Joanne on 01606 853327.
