The Railway Children will be streamed on YouTube on Monday as part of The Shows Must Go On! series.

Mike Kenny's stage adaptation of E Nesbit's classic novel was staged in a purpose built 1,000-seat theatre, complete with a railway track and platforms.

Directed by Damian Cruden, it was first produced by York Theatre Royal at the National Railway Museum, York, where it enjoyed two sell-out and critically acclaimed seasons in 2008 and 2009.

While free, the stream is supporting Child Bereavement UK – which you can support here.

The production will be available for 48 hours from Monday 21 December at 2pm.
