APRIL EVENING MUSIC TRAIN CHESTER TO PLUMLEY

25th April 2012

The Time Bandits, Full House and Roy Clinging are playing and singing on the music train from Chester and at the Golden Pheasant pub in Plumley. 

They are promoting Chester Folk Festival to be held at Kelsall from Friday 1st June to Monday 4th June. 

The Train leaves Chester at 19:07.

How our Music Trains work

• we use the regular hourly services on the Mid Cheshire Line

• musicians play on the train, both ways, and at the pub

• there is no charge for the music - your 'admission' is the train fare – though there is a collection for the musicians on the train

• pubs have special Music Train menus - Click here  Golden Pheasant Menu  The Greyhound Menu

• on the trains to Plumley and Ashley there is nothing else to pay (other than your drinks and food at the Golden Pheasant and the Greyhound).

• no need to book to Plumley or Ashley but please tell the Music Trains organiser in advance if you plan to bring a group of eight or more

• on the trains to Chester there is a package deal (booked in advance) to cover taxis between the station and Alexanders - and sausages and mash at Alexanders – your train ticket is extra.

Train Tickets

• buy your ticket at the station at Chester, Piccadilly and Stockport.

• at Northwich, Knutsford and Altrincham buy it at the ticket office if it is open

• at other stations (or if the ticket office is closed) just board the train and buy your ticket from the conductor - you can pay with a credit or debit card.
