Children's literary classic streamed live

Vue Halifax and Hebden Bridge Picture House are encouraging locals to get in touch with their inner culture vultures this Easter by visiting them to watch a special streaming of York Theatre Royal's stage adaptation of The Railway Children on Easter Monday (3pm).

The one-off screening of this classic children’s story, will be a perfect treat for all the family. E. Nesbit’s wonderfully evocative story tells of the fortunes ofthree siblings, Roberta (Bobbie), Phyllis and Peter, whose lives are uprooted when they are forced to move from London to rural Yorkshire and live by a railway. All the while the children are waiting to be reunited with their father, who works at the Foreign office, and who has been imprisoned after being falsely accused of spying.

The Olivier award-winning production of the stage adaptation was filmed at the National Railway Museum in York and also features the original locomotive from the much loved 1970 film which starred Dinah Sheridan, Bernard Cribbins and Jenny Aguter. The Railway Children will screen on March 28. Visit for tickets.
