A steam train bursts out of a tunnel, heading towards us in a cloud of steam. The title 'The Railway Children' is emblazoned across the top of the picture and to the far left is a smaller sign by a signal which says 'Cross the line by the level crossing'.

E. Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children is brought thrillingly to life in a stunning new stage production.

This best-loved tale, made famous by the iconic 1970 movie starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins, delivers a compelling coming of age story and a fascinating insight into Edwardian rural life.

When their father mysteriously disappears with two strangers one evening, the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are turned upside down. Forced to leave the comforts of their privileged London life in exchange for a simple existence in the depths of the Yorkshire countryside, this fractured family soon discovers new friendships and an unexpected secret that will change their lives forever.

Complete with beautiful period costumes and ingenious designs, this new production promises an uplifting theatrical experience for all ages, packed with intrigue, adventure, joy and jubilation.
