The event, which, over two decades ago, featured on a festive edition of BBC Songs of Praise, is our annual event that brings the real meaning of Christmas to the Worth Valley.

The evening begins at 19.00 with carols at Oxenhope station. Passengers then travel by steam train, stopping at all principal stations. At each stop, passengers will alight to sing carols,  accompanied by Hall Royd Brass Band, hear part of the Christmas story read by church members and join in prayers. A real ale bar is available on the train and a complimentary pie and pea supper is served at Keighley.

On arrival at Keighley, in the past, members of several Yorkshire choirs performed some unaccompanied pieces The evening culminates with a return train ride non-stop back to Oxenhope.
