The summer theatre season presents E Nesbit’s classic family story; The Railway Children. Watch the story unfold as the gentle Edwardian lifestyle is about to be turned upside down for Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis…

Mysteriously separated from their father, Bobbie and her family relocate to “Three Chimneys” in Yorkshire. As endless days stretch before them, the family set about establishing themselves and making friends in the village. The all-important railway runs like a life vein through the community and its importance grows –learning from the people in and around it, the children rediscover and piece their family back together as the story steams towards its heart-warming and iconic end.

Wrapped in a blanket of nostalgia, this show delivers the heart and soul of this timeless classic and, with inspirational storytelling and uplifting music at its core, guarantees to have the whole family, whatever their age, on their feet and cheering.
Choose from two performances on Wednesday 15 or Thursday 16 August at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £13 for adults £9 for children and concessions or £39 for a family (2+2).
