Win tickets to see The Railway Children at Waterloo station

A FABULOUS stage version of children’s classic The Railway Children comes to Waterloo Station, complete with a real steam train, and we are giving away family tickets.

A spectacular adaptation of E. Nesbit’s classic, The Railway Children, steams into London’s Waterloo from York, where it was originally produced at the National Railway Museum and the Recorder has three family tickets to give away.

It is being staged at the former Eurostar terminal, where a 1,000 seat venue has been built around the railway tracks with audience seated either side.

The Railway Children, adapted by Mike Kenny and directed by Damian Cruden, brings with it all the power of hope, the romance of steam trains and the magic of theatrical invention.

Featuring Stirling Single, a gorgeous 66-tonne steam locomotive and the Old Gentleman’s Saloon (from the original Railway Children film), join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they tell their story – of joy, sadness, laughter and love.
