There will be a giant television screen playing Thomas DVD’s for children to watch. Families can also enjoy face painting, roundabout rides, and colouring activities.
There will be regular Annie & Clarabel rides at the station behind Thomas, a free sticker for every child and an A5 size Junior Engineer’s Certificate which is available from Mrs Kyndley. Children can also help to fill an engine’s boiler with water.
There will be a fun sing-along session and a special coal cake presentation for Thomas each day.
