Classic tale The Railway Children is brought to the outside stage in Northampton this week.

The Looking Glass Theatre presents their adaptation of ‘The Railway Children’, staged in The Courtyard in Abington Park’s Museum, from tomorrow night.

Join Albert Perks, the station porter, as he and his family retell the exciting adventures that occur one summer, when three children have to mysteriously move from a large Edwardian villa in London, to a small house situated close to ‘The Great Northern and Western Railway’ in the Yorkshire dales.

The set, that transforms into many different settings, has been designed by Paul Beasley (Head of Workshop at The Royal & Derngate) and adapted and directed by Looking Glass Theatre’s James J. Smith.

The family friendly play will be performed tomorrow night at 7.30pm, Friday, August 24 at 7.30pm and on Sunday, Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26 at 2.15pm.
