Live Events The Railway Children Monday 28th March at 5pm (£12.00/£10.00)

Make tracks to watch a truly unique theatrical experience Do you remember the 1970 movie version of E. Nesbit’s The Railway Children starring Jenny Agutter? It tells the story of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on the adventure of a lifetime as their father is imprisoned after being falsely accused of spying. Now imagine the classic adventure transferred to the stage. The breathtaking show features a stage built around a real train track, and a beautiful 60-tonne vintage locomotive that steams into the theatre. Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey) will play Mr Perks and Caroline Harker (The Madness of King George) returns in the role of Mother. Don’t miss your chance to see this runaway hit. All aboard!
