A coming of age story and insight into Edwardian rural life

E. Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children is coming to Bromley’s Churchill Theatre in a new stage production from September 26 to October 1.

This tale, made famous by the 1970 movie starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins, delivers a coming of age story and a insight into Edwardian rural life.

When their father mysteriously disappears with two strangers one evening, the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are turned upside down.

Forced to leave the comforts of their privileged London life in exchange for a simple rural existence in Yorkshire, this fractured family soon discover new friendships and an unexpected secret that will change their lives forever.

Complete with period costumes and designs, this production promises a theatrical experience for all ages.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
