This is a special event for children, which was held on Saturday 10th August. It featured the following activities:

  • characters in costume;
  • face painting; and
  • painting of plaques.

As well as these, trains ran to the normal timetable, and provided an opportunity to visit Middleton Park. Also our usual range of light refreshments was available.

Special fares were charged for this event, as follows.

  • One adult, with up to two accompanying children: £9.00p;
  • Additional children: £4.00p each.

Note that all children must be accompanied by some adult.


Our Santa Special trains are now running, but are all fully booked.
