Steam on the Dock  – one of the UK’s only inner-city steam rallies – returns to the Albert Dock for its third year with over 30 steam engines and boats on 12-13 May 2018. All aboard for a weekend of family fun!

Expect over 30 steam engines on both land and sea, from dinky miniatures to huge, towering lorries situated throughout Albert Dock. See these shiny, grand machines of the industrial age up close and in full steam!

What’s new for this year? We’re giving visitors a free ticket to ride on a miniature steam railway! Be thrilled by the showman’s engines – colossal machines and guaranteed show-stoppers at any steam rally. Blink or you’ll miss the speedy Steam Bregazzi Buggy – a nifty, hand-made steam machine, which will be speeding around the Dock delivering coal to her bigger relatives.

There’ll also be music and spectacle from the steam fairground organ, the hilarious One Man Band and Phoebe, Formby Brass band and Mr Bernard with his Victorian circus skills showcase. From juggling peacock feathers to stilt walking – be prepared to be amazed! Also keep an eye out for The Curious Contrivance – trundling along with its wings flapping, pistons pumping and the inevitable sounds of gas propulsion.

Make sure to stick around for the Steam Showcase (13:00 and 15:00, both days) and witness these monster machines thunder around the Dock under full steam. It is here that visitors will have the unique opportunity to experience Albert Dock as it was as a working, industrial dock in the 19th century. This is a camera moment not to miss!
