When father mysteriously disappears at Christmas, Roberta, Peter and Phyllis leave London for a new life in the Kent countryside. Discovering a railway at the end of the garden is just the first step to many adventures! To coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Academy Award nominated film, Mike Kennyâs new adaptation of E. Nesbitâs novel The Railway Children will be performed at a unique venue at Waterloo Station in the former Eurostar terminal. The auditorium, created especially for this production, will be built with the audience seated either side of the original railway track, with the action taking place both on the track and on the platforms either side. The production, which uses the old Gentlemanâs saloon carriage from the original classic film, will also feature a period steam train from the National Railway Museum in York.
