We are delighted to be hosting Weardale Wordfest's first ever children’s book event on Saturday 5 August 10 - 3pm
Expect lots of fun-packed activities on The Story Train! Go on a very special ride with Darly the Magical History Train and his creator, Peter Barron*.
Unearth some astonishing tall tales and make your own amazing poems and stories with Victoria Downes and Geri Poole, have fun with story gatherers Stella and Hector and Becki Ashton. And, of course, you can buy some fabulous books, visit the station café or even go on a real train ride! We will post more details of the activities and timings soon.
Events on the station or the Story Train are free, there is no need to book, just turn up – but normal train fares apply for a seat on the Magical History Train, and booking is essential. See below for information.
*This will be on a scheduled train, 13.00 hours from Stanhope Railway Station to Wolsingham and back. You can find information about the Weardale Railway, train times, prices etc. on their website www.weardale-railway.org.uk
