The play will follow the original story of the Waterbury family

A production of the classic book, The Railway Children, is heading to Canterbury this August.

As part of a major UK tour, the play is disembarking at the Marlowe Theatre.

The original book follows the children of the Waterbury family - Roberta, Peter and Phyllis - and the baffling disappearance of their father who departed with two strangers one evening.

Once forced to leave the contentment of their entitled London life, they must indulge in a simple existence in the countryside.

The performances in Canterbury will take place from August 15 – 19.

A spokesman for the production company said: “You can expect an uplifting theatrical experience jam-packed with beautiful costumes and innovative designs.

“Advanced technology such as video landscapes and digital projections portray a stunning visual environment to set the scene.”

Tickets for the show are on sale now priced from £22.25 to £33.25, available from marlowtheatre.com or the box office on 01227 787787.

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.
