Lates: Makers' Skills

Join us for a special late event, co-ordinated by our Youth Team, as part of Heritage Open Days 2022.

Learn more about the astounding inventions and amazing vehicles on display in our Main Hall, including Locomotion No. 1, the very first steam locomotive to pull a passenger train on a public railway.

Find out about some of the makers' skills involved in creating these engineering innovations, and have a go at some fun making activities yourself.

About the New Wave programme

Locomotion took part in the Heritage Open Days New Wave programme in 2021, working with young adults to develop new, innovative events. As a result of this work, this year we are back with an official 'New Wave legacy' event.
