The Railway Children runs from Tuesday 24th to Sunday 29th October. This production sees E. Nesbit’s classic book brought to life in a stunning new stage production which is part of a major national tour. Recommended for adults and children alike, the best-loved tale – made famous by the iconic 1970 movie starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins – delivers a thrilling coming of age story and a fascinating insight into Edwardian rural life. Complete with beautiful period costumes, digital projections and ingenious designs, this new production promises an uplifting theatrical experience packed with intrigue and adventure.

Written by Edith Nesbit in 1906 and since adapted for both stage and screen, The Railway Children follows the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis, whose lives are turned upside down when their father mysteriously disappears with two strangers one evening. Forced to leave the comforts of their privileged London life in exchange for a simple existence in the depths of the Yorkshire countryside, this fractured family soon discover new friendships and an unexpected secret that will change their lives forever.

Tickets are available from the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on 01225 448844 and online at
