The Railway Children Holiday Club on the Story Train Sign up form
We are hosting our first ever holiday club during the summer holidays for primary school aged pupils.

Each Wednesday from July 26th to August 30th, The Story Train team will be running a holiday club with a free healthy lunch for Years 3 to 6, (aged 7 - 11 year olds) for primary school pupils attending schools in Weardale: 
  • Witton le Wear
  • Frosterley
  • Wolsingham
  • Stanhope Barrington
  • St John Chapel
  • Wearhead
  • Rookhope
Throughout the course of the 6 weeks, we’ll be learning all about railways, train travel and how to be safe whilst travelling on the railway. Each session will be joined by Puppets Hector the Story Collector and Stella the Storyteller with the Train Buddies as well as a drama, singing and making a film around the railway. 

To sign up, children must be available to come to all (or as many as possible) sessions as the course builds on the previous week.

Drop off time: 11.30
Pick up: 1pm*
(*Except July 26 and August 30*, when the pick time is 2pm)
*Parents are welcome to join their child on a FREE train ride on the 1pm train from Stanhope to Wolsingham (and return) on the first and last sessions on July 26th and August 30th. Please indicate on the booking form if you wish to join.

There are limited spaces which are offered on a first come, first served basis. The holiday club is a drop off holiday club due to limited spaces on the Story Train and looked after by a team of professional educators, safeguard trained with enhanced DBS certificates.

The Story Train is a creative arts space in a transformed former LNER High Speed Train Buffet Car at Stanhope Station. 

There will be a free healthy meal for the children and served at the buffet counter.
