The Railway Children Talk
The View, Exeter Northcott Theatre and Bar
Was E. Nesbit’s classic tale The Railway Children inspired by a narrowly-averted train accident in the South West?
Join University of Exeter lecturer, Dr Joanne Parker, in The View as she reveals what inspired E Nesbit to write her novel. The talk will also explore the themes that E Nesbitt wrote about in The Railway Children, and the ways in which it is still a topical story for families today.
This event is FREE and will happen before the performance of The Railway Children.
