The Ffestiniog Railway Jazz Train is back and ready to rumble!

jazz train ffestiniog

August this year brings out one of the best events in the area, the ‘Jazz Train’. That’s right; expect to enjoy the mellow sounds of Jazz at Tan-y-Bwlch this summer, with a number of trains and dates to choose from.

The 2017 Jazz Train will feature the ever popular Dr Jazz! The location for this event is around a 40 minute (very pleasant) drive from West Point Beach Resort Holiday Park North Wales and offers sublime scenery along the way.

The trains are going to be running on August 3rd, 10th and 17th and will feature a range of indoor and outdoor seating, with plenty of space to enjoy a dance out in the open air. The BBQ is set to be an ‘all you can eat’, making for an idyllic meal to enjoy along with jazz, scenery and trains. There will also be light snacks and platters, sweets, beverages and a licensed bar.

Those interested should get booking now, as the trains at Ffestiniog Railway are soon set to fill up. First class is also limited so don’t wait too long to make your booking!

The event is for Jazz Train ticket holders only and therefore Tan Y Bwlch will not be accessible to the public on the day. Guests are asked to not bring their own food and drink as the event takes place in the café and grounds – which are licensed premises.

Those attending can hope for lovely summer weather, though it is recommended you bring a coat with you to enjoy music through into the night where it could get a little chilly. The event is truly geared up for great popularity and success – a perfect way to enjoy North Wales in August.

Advance booking is highly recommended and can be booked online via the online booking or call the booking office on 01766 516024 – food can also be pre-ordered when you buy your ticket.
