Next stop Pershore for Railway Children

Evesham Editorial 26th Mar, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

A DRAMATIC play exploring the lives of three youngsters in Edwardian Yorkshire is heading to the Vale.

Pershore Number 8 Community Arts Centre is proud to announce York Theatre Royal’s Olivier award-winning production of The Railway Children will be performed on Tuesday (March 29) and Saturday (April 2).

Recorded at the National Railway Museum and based on the classic E. Nesbit book, this breath-taking show tells the story of siblings Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis, whose lives change drastically when their father is mysteriously taken away.

Moving from London with their mother to a cottage in Yorkshire, they befriend a railway porter known as ‘Perks’ and embark on a magical journey of discovery, friendship and adventure.

But the mystery remains – where is father and is he ever coming back?

Featuring a stage built around a real train track and the original locomotive from the much-loved 1970 film, this is a fantastic family show and a real treat for all ages.

Seats in row J and S are unsuitable for small children due to a railed barrier in front of them that may obscure their view.

The show starts at 2.30pm each day and runs for two hours, which includes an interval.

Tickets cost £12.50 for adults and £10 for children aged 16 and under – there will be an 85p ticket fee if booked online.

• Call the theatre’s Box Office on 01386 555488 for more information.
