Climb aboard for a theatre trip to York

York, North Yorkshire

Celebrate York’s grand locomotive history with two iconic plays at the National Railway Museum – In Fog and Falling Snow and The Railway Children.

In Fog and Falling Snow is set in the mid 1840s, when George Hudson sets forth on his journey to build the great East Coast rail network. The people who build it, the investors and the passengers are all caught up in the reckless extravagance of his great adventure. Book a theatre trip and enjoy the story vividly retold by a cast of 200 people from 26th June to 11th July.

Meanwhile, July sees the stunning adaptation of E. Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children set in a purpose-built venue that allows you to sit on station platforms and see the original locomotive from the film version. Join Bobby, Peter and Phyllis in this truly unique theatrical experience from 31st July to 5th September.
