‘Us’ – youth theatre show on a moving train!

πŸ—“ Tues 31 May, 10.30am-1pm
πŸ“Œ Leaving from Gloucester Train Station, GL1 1RP

The fantastic Strike A Light youth theatre have been cooking up something special…

A live performance on an actual train!

It’s an original show called ‘Us’ – all the Youth Theatre’s own ideas and work πŸŽ‰

It’s been specially commissioned by Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership

You should come and see it!

The show starts at Gloucester Train Station.

Then, we’ll all take our seats on the train as it sets off for Lydney.

During the journey, you’ll get to watch an amazing, original performance from the brilliant Youth Theatre members (ages 11-16).

At the other end, there’ll be a short walk to Lydney waterfront, where the show finishes.

Then you’ll have some time to explore the beautiful scenery and grab a drink in the local cafe, before heading home whenever suits you.

Your ticket includes the train journey AND a free drink and cake from Hips Social cafe in Lydney.

The show tickets are pay-what-you-choose, so you can get all that for free if you want!
