THE National Railway Museum is gearing up to host a local music festival.

The museum together with Fossgate’s MOR Music have been putting the final touches to the preparation for the music festival being held at the museum this coming Saturday between 2pm and midnight.

Twenty-two acts - including Beth McCarthy and Boss Caine - will be playing both in Station Hall as well as on a moving locomotive out in the South Yard.

Acoustic and solo acts will have half hour sets on the Directors’ Saloon and Station Hall will play host to half hour sets from 3pm.

Jim Lowe, Head of Operations said: “This is a first for the museum and the response we’ve had to putting on such an event has been overwhelming. It promises to be a day of great music for the entire family to enjoy.”

Lynne O’Dea of MOR Music agreed: “Interest in this event has been phenomenal and we can’t wait for Saturday when we see it all come together. We’ve got some big acts playing so there’s something for everyone.”

In radio terms MOR always related to Middle-of-the Road music. In this context, does it mean Middle-of-the-Rails? And if so, will the third rail (and therefore the music) be unplugged?
