The Youth Group is delighted to present Mike Kenny’s glorious adaptation of the much loved children’s classic packed with nostalgia and charm.

It had two critically acclaimed runs at the National Railway Museum, before being staged at Waterloo Station, where it won an Olivier award for Best Entertainment.

Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis’ lives change considerably when their father is taken away. They are forced to move from their luxurious London life to a cottage in rural Yorkshire where their sole interest becomes the trains and its passengers passing by.

With our thriving youth group’s enthusiasm and talent, this production promises to be as heartwarming as your first reading of the novel, your first viewing of the film or even your first experience of a steam train!

“Profoundly moving... it never for a moment runs out of steam”
