Isle of Wight Steam Railway – Quay Arts

Venue information
Hosted at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway by Quay Arts, widely considered as the Isle of Wight’s leading art gallery and venue for live arts events, this beautifully preserved award-winning railway creates the perfect backdrop for a truly special day out. Travel back to the golden age of travel at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Step aboard glorious Edwardian and Victorian wooden-bodied carriages for your journey through the rolling Island countryside, hauled by a gleaming steam locomotive – book online to reserve your own compartment. A visit to the Railway is much more than a train ride. Visit the Train Story Discovery Centre, take in the free birds of prey displays, or just relax in the station gardens and watch the train go by. The performance takes place in the Railway’s events field at Havenstreet station. There’s ample free parking, plus a bar and hot refreshments are available throughout the evening.

Should the performance start and then be called off by the weather, no refund can be issued however if the weather is so bad that the performance cannot even begin, a full refund will be issued.

We will be adhering to the most up to date government guidelines relating to outdoor theatre. Our tour is ‘See It Safely’ compliant, please click here for more information. More information regarding our Covid safety planning can be found here. We want to make your continued attendance at live theatre as safe as possible and as enjoyable as possible for everyone.

Relaxed performances
We believe that all of our performances can be considered as relaxed. The lights don’t go down (until the sun sets!), the performances take place in the open air where there is plenty of space for audience members and all are welcome. We believe that theatre should be as accessible as possible and will be happy to talk to you about how we can make it accessible for you.
