Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, The Railway Children Return is an enchanting, moving and heart-warming adventure for a new generation.

1944 – As life in Britain’s cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children – Lily, Pattie and Ted Watts – are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth. There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter, reprising her iconic role in the original film), her daughter, Annie, and grandson Thomas and with their help the evacuees are soon settling into their new life in the countryside. When the children discover injured American soldier Abe hiding out in the railyard at Oakworth Station, they are thrust into a dangerous quest to assist their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home.

There will be a The Railway Children Return screening with English subtitles displayed at the bottom of the screen to help viewers who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing or just need help with dialogue to enjoy the film fully, on Tuesday 9 August. Click here to book
