The Railway Children at Thorington Theatre


A wonderful play for all the family.

Join us on 24th August 2022 for The Railway Children at Thorington Theatre. Whilst written more than a century ago, this creative adaptation of E. Nesbit’s charming children’s novel inspires audiences of all ages; with captivating folk music woven throughout, this wonderful production is sure to delight the senses and warm all hearts.

When their father has to leave their London home unexpectedly, Roberta, Phyllis and Peter travel with their mother to start a new life in rural Yorkshire. Their love of trains and the nearby railway line lead to new friendships and adventures, but the mystery of why their father doesn’t return remains so they seek to find answers, and help to bring him home. Adapted for the stage by Sarah Slator.

Thorington Theatre is a magical new open air woodland theatre in Suffolk. There is a bar serving refreshments and free parking; you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy before the show. Doors open 45 minutes before each show. For more information please follow @thoringtontheatre.
