HERITAGE RAILWAYS

Over the years we have come to realise one very important fact... 

WE LOVE RAILWAYS! 

That's why we've become experts at creating amazing entertainment for the exceptional heritage railways around the country. We understand that each line is unique, with its own fabulous features, individual engines and stunning station stops and we work hard alongside the teams at these venues to create events that complement each railway perfectly.

Heritage Railways aren't just a venue where our events take place. They are a character within the events themselves and our events are just the ticket to attract new audiences aboard to fall in love with the railways just like we have.

You can find details below of all the heritage railways we've worked with and the events we have presented. For further details on our Murder Mystery Events click the link here to visit our dedicated murder mystery company :

EAST LANCASHIRE RAILWAY

 

We have a very special affinity to East Lancashire Railway as we've worked alongside them for over 10 years and provide over 30 events a year. Over that time we've provided Murder Mystery Events, Adventure days, Halloween Experiences, Theatrical productions, Elves and the Allo Allo Characters to the line and we hope to continue for years to come.

Make the trip from grandparent to grandchild on a journey that spans generations on this heritage railway.

With a storied history stretching back to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the East Lancashire Railway is the steam powered heart of the Irwell Valley, pumping goods and people around the region for nearly 200 years!

The line runs for 12 miles through scenic Lancastrian landscapes, from beautiful rural panoramas and postcard pretty villages to bustling Victorian towns and cotton mill dotted horizons. Each station offers something unique, from historical Heywood to relaxing Rawtenstall, scenic Summerseat and bustling Bury.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

Murder Mystery Events, Adventure Days, 

Elves on the Santa Express, Allo Allo Characters at the 40s Weekend

AVON VALLEY RAILWAY

 

We've been working with our friends in the South for 7 years now providing Murder Mystery Events and Adventure Days and perform approx 8 events a year (and cannot recommend the cake in the station cafe highly enough!) We've seen the station go from strength to strength and have loved being along for the ride! 

Opened in 1869 by the Midland Railway as a through-route between Birmingham and the South Coast the line was later linked to the iconic Somerset & Dorset Railway. Closed under the Beeching Axe of the 1960's the Avon Valley Railway was preserved by an enthusiastic group of volunteers. Today, 40 years on, three miles of track has been re-laid, locomotives and carriages restored, and the sound of steam can once again be heard along the Avon Valley.

KEIGHLEY & WORTH VALLEY RAILWAY

 

We love making new friends at heritage railways and we began working with KWVR in 2019 offering Adventure Days and Murder Mystery events. We're back again in 2020 and hopefully this will blossom into a beautiful relationship for many years to come.

The KWVR is a heritage railway which was reopened in 1968 and runs from Keighley to Oxenhope through beautiful Brontë country. Board our steam train and enjoy the sound of the engine climbing the steep sides of the valley, while great clouds of steam and smoke add drama to the scene. The five mile journey is a powerful reminder of our industrial heritage, as well as being a unique way of enjoying the beautiful countryside immortalised by Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë.

The Railway is perhaps most famous for its role in the 1970 film version of Edith Nesbit's story The Railway Children but
over the years, the Railway has appeared in many TV and film productions. You can visit Rail Story at Ingrow and see the engines and carriages used in these films.
