Railways, steam engines and crafts at the Waterfront this weekend
Discover model railways, get crafty or browse the delights at our fair
On Saturday and Sunday (3 and 4 Sept), craft lovers can enjoy a two-day fair selling a mix of local, modern and traditional crafts. The fair will bring together talented crafters from across the Swansea Bay region to display and sell their creations. Stalls will range from glass, ceramics, jewellery and textiles to photography, pewter work and home-made fudge. The fair will take place in the Museum's main hall from 10am-4pm on both days.
A Model Railway & Steam Day will take place on Sunday from 10.30am. The day will be packed full of model railways layouts from Swansea and Neath Model Railway Clubs, hands-on activities for children as well as screenings of the popular 80's cartoon Ivor the Engine.
Also, if the weather stays dry, the Penydarren, a replica of the world's first steam locomotive, will be steamed up and driven down the track from 12pm. The Penydarren is a copy of the pioneering tram road locomotive built in 1803-04 by the Cornishman Richard Trevithick for the Penydarren ironworks, Merthyr Tydfil.
"There's something for everyone this weekend at the Museum and a great way to round off the summer holidays," said Marketing Manager, Marie Szymonski.
"Whether you'd like to discover more about model railways, get crafty or browse the delights at the fair, there's definitely something to keep you and the whole family entertained."
