The Railway Children

Inspired by the beloved E. Nesbit story and 1970 film adaption, this wonderful tale is sure to delight a new generation of cinema goers.

Set during WWII, three evacuee children are sent to a remote Yorkshire village from Manchester. Taken in by Bobbie (Jenny Agutter reprising her original role) and her family, the children settle into their new life; however, when they discover an injured American soldier hiding out in the railyard, they’re thrust into a dangerous quest to assist their new friend.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count. 

Booking is essential, so please book your tickets before attending.
