The John Ayres Ukulele Proms line-up is as follows.
With bands playing in both the Music Marquee on Oddicombe Beach and some in the Cliff Railway Cafe:
This is genuinely a real “wow” moment.
We’ve been counting you all on and off our carriages today and we are pretty overwhelmed to announce that we had:
4,571 passengers on Babbacombe Cliff Railway today as our carriages went up and down and up and down and…..
See what we mean by “wow”?
Some of you will have counted as one passenger and some as two….. or maybe three (depending on how many trips you made).
We thought you’d like our “travel for free” offer and we thought that we had managed to spread the word pretty well but, even so…..
We have had a truly lovely day. Stunning sunshine and hoards of fabulous, friendly people travelling with us.
Thank you everyone and Happy Cliff Railway Day!
Maybe we’ll do it again some time…..
What a week it’s been so far for us!
To add to the excitement, bright and early tomorrow morning (Friday 10th May), BBC Radio Devon will be broadcasting a segment of their Breakfast Show live from the Babbacombe Cliff Railway.
Tune in and listen to us at approximately 8:20am when we will be discussing all things Babbacombe Cliff Railway including our upcoming Cliff Railway Day.
So today’s the day. Or rather tonight’s the night…..
We’re delighted to be appearing on BBC2 at 22:00 in “Don’t Forget The Driver” with the amazing (and very friendly when we met him) actor Toby Jones.
Whilst we only play a small part in the episode, you may recognise a familiar face at the Railway opening the carriage doors to Toby’s character, coachdriver Peter Green.
If you have visited our friends around the corner at the Babbacombe Model Village you may also recognise a few things in the episode. The “chase” scene in particular makes for amusing viewing.
It has been a lovely series to have been part of and it was a real pleasure for us to welcome Toby and the film crew last October.
Please note that we will open at 10am rather than 9am on Tuesday 7/5/19. This is for routine maintenance work to take place before.
Many thanks for your patience and we look forward to your visit.
