About The Railway Children

The Actors' Church is delighted to welcome back Tethered Wits as part of our Theatre In The Garden Season.

All aboard! Tethered Wits invites you to embark on a magical journey filled with fun, music, and heartwarming storytelling.

Meet the Waterbury children: Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis. They are ordinary children living in an ordinary house, until one day, a mysterious event changes their lives forever.

Forced to move to the countryside, they move near a bustling railway, where every passing locomotive brings new mysteries, friendships, and discoveries. Our young heroes find themselves in the midst of a true adventure. Bring your friends and family together, on a journey that celebrates the timeless power of love, community, and the unbreakable bonds of family.

What time do you open?
Access to the church grounds will be from 45 minutes before the start of the performance.

How do I book a specific seat?
This performance has unreserved seating, and is on a first come, first served basis. Alternatively, if you would prefer to bring your own chair or picnic blanket, please let the Front of House staff know, and they will do their best to seat you. There is a good view from wherever you're sat!

Do you sell refreshments?
There will be a bar open from 45 minutes before the performance starts, during the interval, and for 30 minutes following the end of the performance. You will be able to purchase cold drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), including Prosecco, Pimm's and other favourites.

Can I bring a picnic?
Although you are allowed to bring your own picnic blanket, you may bring food but we only allow drink that has been purchased onsite to be consumed on the premises. Note that this is not a lawn production and seating will be provided.

Are there toilets?
Yes, there are gender neutral bathrooms located on the first floor of the church. There is also an access toilet located within the foyer of the church. Access to the church is step free.

What happens if it rains?
The Great British summertime is famous for its unpredictable weather! In 99% of chances, the performance will continue come rain or shine. In cases of heavy rain, it may be necessary to halt the performance for a short period. In the unlikely circumstance of extreme weather (including extreme heat), the performance may be postponed until a further date. For more information on this, please read the venue's Weather Policy.

Do please dress for the weather accordingly! If possible, try to avoid bringing umbrellas as they can block sight-lines for other audience members. Raincoats and ponchos are just as fetching - the venue can provide free ponchos for audience members without any suitable cover! How do I contact you about my ticket?
