Holding Parties


A question that we are frequently asked is 'can I hold my son or daughter's birthday party at your ground?' We welcome people to hold their parties at our site during our Public Running Days but would respectfully remind your that we are a model engineering society and do not have facilities to entertain children nor to provide cover in the event of rain. People who have held parties in the past have generally brought 'patio marquees' with them to protect against the rain.


If you would like to hold your party then please note that while the trains will not start until 1.30pm the gates are open at 12.30pm. If you wish to unload your party equipment from a car we ask that the central part of our ground be kept free of cars between 1.30pm and 5.30pm.


One of the joys of our site is that it is tucked away in a fairly quiet (except for the sound of steam whistles!) corner of Cambridge. We do not have a rubbish/refuse collection so we ask that you take any rubbish home with you and dispose of it there.
