Produced by Partnership Theatre Company.


It’s been a delight to work on E.Nesbit’s much loved classic; The Railway Children, with a very enthusiastic team and charming cast who have worked very hard to stage this production in a short period.

We have been fortunate enough to acquire use of the original music score and the fitting setting of Grove House in the idyllic grounds of Odney, Cookham.

Welcome to a story full of innocence, charm and imagination as we follow the lives of young Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis whose father has mysteriously been taken away. Now the family must face upheaval from London to Yorkshire, adventure and growing up, friendship and magic as they seek help and start to unravel the mystery.

A beautiful and nostalgic tale, faithfully adapted by Mike Kenny ‘You don’t need a real train to perform this play…the most powerful prop is the imagination’
We hope you enjoy watching this fast paced staging, of a play that has captivated generations.
