World Book Day Weekend

Our celebration of reading . . .

March 9th & 10th

World Book Day Weekend

World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it's a celebration of reading. In fact, it's the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world!

Visit the Railway and be inspired by displays and workshops, with lots of things to see and do for all the family up and down the line. Don't forget to come dressed up as your favourite character!

And for the adults, we're partnering up with Bewdley Literary Festival, and creating an on-train library. 

Attractions include:

  • Storytelling, creative workshops and library at The Engine House.
  • Library on the train with immersive activities.
  • Fairytale Trail along the line.
    Practically Perfect Afternoon Tea
    Are you looking for that “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” gift?

    Inspired by the tale, our Afternoon Tea treats will be themed; with finger sandwiches, savoury treats and sweet fancies.

    The Experience runs on March 9th, with departures available from Kidderminster at 2.00pm, or from Bridgnorth at 3.40pm.
