The Railway Children

What better way to round up the school holidays than with a trip to the theatre to enjoy the classic tale of The Railway Children on Sunday 30 October at Thornton Little Theatre.

Presented by Starbright Entertainments, E. Nesbit’s well-loved tale will be brought to life in this brand new adaptation.

Roberta, Peter and Phyllis live in a comfortable house in London until their father, who works for the government, is falsely accused of selling state secrets and is imprisoned for five years. The children and their mother have no choice but to leave their home and move to a quiet little cottage next to a railway in Oakworth, Yorkshire. They quickly make friends with the Station Master, Mr Perks, and an Old Gentleman who waves everyday from his carriage on the 9.15 to London. This unlikely friendship proves to be a very fortunate one and could be key to the release of their father…

A beautiful blend of storytelling, drama, comedy and musical theatre, this really is the perfect way to make literature come alive for all the family!

The Railway Children is on at Thornton Little Theatre on Sunday 30 October at 2.30pm. Tickets are just £9, to book call the box office on 01253 887693 or click here to book online.
