Summer Movies al Fresco: The Railway Children

Sunday 17th January 2021

G 1970 109 mins

When their father is suddenly taken away by police on Christmas Eve the Waterbury children, Roberta, Phyllis and Peter, have to relocate to Yorkshire with their mother, downsizing to a cottage beside a railway track and finding new friends and adventures in the town of Oakworth.

In conjunction with this Wakefield screening only, Higgins Heritage Park will have their exhibition sheds open throughout the day til 3pm. Bring a group out for an exploration of the exhibits then a picnic at Faulkner Bush Reserve before this beautiful steam era film. Join us for giant board games, enjoy the park and watch the regions’ glorious summer sunsets. Wrap up warm and please pocket a torch to light your way home.

If it looks like rain, please text “Is it on?” to 021 776 623 after 7.30pm.

PLEASE pack it in, pack it out and KEEP OUR PARKS BEAUTIFUL!
