A timeless story retold through an awe-inspring production
Originally staged by York Theatre Royal in 2008, The Railway Children returns to King's Cross Station for an extraordinary production. Starring Sean Hughes, directed by Damian Cruden and staged around a real train track, the story follows a family and an innocent man falsely accused of espionage. The winner of the Olivier Award, it's an adventure of a lifetime and coming aboard is your only way to find out. It’s your last chance to see this stunning adaptation of E Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children at London's Kings Cross Theatre. Set in a purpose built 1,000 seat venue with a vintage foyer, this breath-taking show features a stage built around a real train track and a glistening 60-tonne locomotive that will steam into the theatre throughout the Christmas holiday period! Steeped in nostalgia and charm, treat your family to the adventure of a lifetime, and join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they tell the story of how they became The Railway Children. ★★★★ – Evening Standard ★★★★ – Financial Times ★★★★ – Sunday Express Not suitable for children under 2.
