The Railway Children Exeter

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.
