Details

Adapted from E. Nesbit's timeless classic, The Railway Children follows Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they move to the countryside of Edwardian England with their mother after their father disappears. In a new and unfamiliar place, the children quickly fall in love with the nearby railway, making friends and having various adventures while Mother desperately tries to make ends meet through her writing. But what will become of the people the children meet - the Russian who arrives tired and ill, the schoolboy who breaks his leg in the tunnel, or the mysterious Old Gentleman? And where is Father?

Olivier Award-winners Rebecca Trehearn and Paul Baker, with television grandee James Bolam, star in this sparkling new musical adaptation. Accompanied by 24 members of the Alex Parker Orchestra, the lush, sweeping sounds of The Railway Children will make for a moving and magical evening.
