welcome to the tyne valley folk train website

Get on board the Folk Train!

 It runs about six times each year from Newcastle Central station and each one is not to be missed.
Imagine a lively folk music session while travelling by a train through the gorgeous scenery of the Tyne Valley to a cosy village pub in Bardon Mill
Join in with traditional – and some more modern – tunes and songs performed by excellent local musicians.

You can also take part in our other events like our popular FolknFell music weekend, with an opportunity for some fell walking too. Alternatively, why not attend an occasional gig or a “Day of Music” combining workshops, session playing and a concert?
