'Stainmore150' events in 2011

During 2011, there will be a full programme of events held in Kirkby Stephen and the local community.
At the moment the details of these have yet to be finalised, but it is intended that (finances permitting) they will comprise the following:
  • A series of exhibitions in Kirkby Stephen during June, July and August.
  • A Festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend based at Kirkby Stephen East to mark the 150th Anniversary of the first passenger train in 1861. This will also witness the first passenger train to depart from the station since closure almost 50 years ago.
  • A series of presentations held in a number of local communities over the winter months (October 2011 - March 2012).
Check back here later for details of these events or better still add your e-mail address to our mailing list here and we will send you full details of our programme as information on each event is available.
