OWNERS of cars from the 1960s are being urged to take part in a major event at the North York Moors Railway this summer.

The railway is hosting a new and improved 60s Fest on July 22 and 23 and wants car owners - as well as traders and exhibitors - to display along the line.

The 60s Fest will showcase everything sixties including music, fashion and of course locomotives.

Organisers say Pickering station will be rocking all weekend, hosting a pop pirate radio show as well as performances by the Beatles for Sale tribute band and Motown band Shade of the 60s.

Passengers will also be able to head back in time at Levisham station, which will be renamed Elvisham, where passengers will be able to enjoy an Elvis impersonator performing the King’s greatest hits.

Both Goathland and Grosmont stations will also be decked out in individual 1960s style, with a beer tent and live music and an “old and new” mini display.

General manager Chris Price said: “Our 60s Fest just gets better every year and it’s always an event we look forward to.”
