The venue itself is a major reason for Weyfest’s popularity. The Rural Life Centre is a working museum, littered with artefacts of past country life and local craft displays throughout the venue. A working light railway runs both steam and diesel trains around the perimeter of the venue and because the venue is so compact everything is within easy reach.
