Thomas the Tank Engine makes the last of his two visits to Bressingham this year. Thomas, the creation of the Reverend Wilbert Awdry to help his son Christopher on his recovery from Scarlet Fever, has entertained and crept into the imagination of generations of children ever since. August 15-19 will be the last opportunity to see Thomas and his friends in Norfolk and Suffolk this year.

At Bressingham Thomas along with the Fat Controller will be in command for the weekend making sure that all the visiting children have fun and ride safely on the three narrow gauge railways pulled by Thomas' friends and on Daisy the coach that Thomas will be working with.

Bressingham will also have children's entertainers on site, the Carousel will be spinning and all usual features such as the Dad's Army Museum and engines sheds will be open. Alan Bloom's Dell Garden and Adrian Bloom's Foggy Bottom Gardens offer a peaceful retreat for the parents and grandparents of the Thomas fans.
