Open air performance of The Railway Children at Filleigh.

THE heart-warming and timeless classic The Railway Children will be staged in an open air show at Castle Hill, Filleigh, on Saturday (August 18).

The performance by Heartbreak Productions starts at 6pm and sees the gentle Edwardian lifestyle of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis turned upside as they are mysteriously separated from their father relocated to Yorkshire.

As endless days stretch before them, the family set about establishing themselves and making friends in the village. The all-important railway runs like a life vein through the community and learning from the people in and around it, the children rediscover and piece their family back together as the story steams towards its heart-warming and iconic end.

This award-winning adaptation offers inspirational storytelling and uplifting music, guaranteeing to have the whole family, whatever their age, on their feet and cheering.
