Making Tracks 3

August 19

Pete Waterman’s Making Tracks returns this summer!

Don’t miss your last chance to join Pete Waterman OBE and his Railnuts team for the third and final instalment of Making Tracks at the Cathedral from 26 July to 2 September.

This year’s 64 foot long track is modelled after Milton Keynes railway station with some very special never seen before features and trains.

Like previous years, visitors will be able to drive the trains using dedicated control tablets.

‘I am really excited to bring this new even better layout to Chester again this year – after being set the challenge of building a station, I can honestly say it’s going to be something very special and we will be offering the chance to adults and children alike to drive the trains.’ – Pete Waterman.

Making Tracks 3 will run from 10am to 5pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays. 

Tickets £3 per person with free entry for children 5 and under.

To guarantee swift entry, pre-book your summer entry tickets here.
