Celebrating the 175th anniversary of the first train ever to travel from Birmingham to London, via Wolverton.
To celebrate Wolverton's 175-year history with the railway industry, there will be a series of celebratory events throughout the year, the first of which was on Saturday 4th May at Milton Keynes Museum in Wolverton. The event included some new displays, talks about the Royal Train by people who worked on it and a screening of the Bloomer being transported from the City Square.
Wolverton Town Band helped launch the celebrations by playing a series of well-known tunes among the trams, carts and bikes in the transport section at the museum between 4pm and 6pm.
The band’s next performance will be on Saturday 1st June when it will be playing at a brass band concert and fish and chip supper at Greenleys Community Centre. This will be part of Wolverton’s twinning weekend when the town will be visited by representatives and the brass band from Ploegsteert in Belgium.
