It’s a story that has delighted adults and children alike – and families can enjoy it in the surrounds of Wrest Park later this month.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is presenting The Railway Children, the heart-warming story of adventure and family set in the Yorkshire countryside, on Thursday June 16 at 7.30pm.

The stage production of E Nesbit’s classic story features period costume, traditional music and songs and a whole host of unforgettable characters.

Laura Turner, who has written the adaptation, said: “The Railway Children has been a delight to adapt, filled with so many memorable moments of courage, heroism, love and friendship.

“It’s a beautiful story of the strength we all have inside ourselves, set amidst the green and fertile countryside of the rolling Yorkshire hills, reminding us that a little bit of faith, love and trust is sometimes all you need.”

Director Bryony Tebbutt said: “I have always loved this story. It’s a classic heart-warming tale of love and trust, and never giving up hope, and I hope this year’s production will prove to be a fun, fast-paced piece of family entertainment.”

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is now in its 17th year of touring open-air theatre at some of the most beautiful country houses, castles and heritage sites across the UK and Ireland.
