"The Railway Children" is a timeless tale that captures the imagination and heart of audiences young and old. Adapted from E. Nesbit's cherished novel, this production promises a captivating experience under the open sky of Helston Railway.

Set against the backdrop of a country railway station in the early 1900s, the story follows the lives of the Waterbury children—Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis—who are uprooted from their comfortable city life to a rural village after their father is mysteriously taken away. The children, along with their mother, Mrs. Waterbury, must adjust to their new surroundings and limited means, but they soon discover solace and adventure in the nearby railway.

The Helston Theatre Company's outdoor rendition of "The Railway Children" promises to transport spectators into a bygone era, where steam engines puff through the countryside and childhood innocence thrives amid adversity. With a blend of humor, suspense, and touching moments, this production celebrates the triumph of good over evil and the enduring spirit of hope.

Whether you're a fan of the classic tale or discovering it for the first time, join us in Helston this August for an unforgettable theatrical journey through the enchanting world of "The Railway Children."

Still to come...
