Saturday 29 & Sunday 30
Peppa Pig and George Visit the Railway
This is the first of our great 'Character Days' especially for the children. It will be a great day out for all the family - especially the younger ones. Your train ticket entitles you to unlimted travel on our steam and diesel trains and buses but with the added bonus of additional activities for the Children.
Appearance Times - All Appearances are at North Weald Station
Peppa Pig and her brother George will be making appearances throughout the day at the Railway. The times are:
10:30 - 11:10
11:30 - 12:10
12:30 - 13:10
13:30 - 14:10
14:30 - 15:00
The appearances by Peppa Pig and George are always popular and occasionally we have to introduce a queuing system.
If you are starting your journey from Ongar Station the last train you can catch is the 14.25 service to have the opportunity to see Peppa Pig & George.
Muddy Puddles Trail & Colouring Competition
Peppa has hidden four large vegetables around the Railway but has left some clues for the children and we know she loves jumping in puddles you won't be surprised to hear that these are found next to four of her favourites puddles! Find the vegetables, and your children, so long as they are wearing their boots, can jump in each of the puddles too - just like Peppa, George and their friends. The four vegetables are hidden around the Railway (where else can you take part in a muddy puzzle hunt that stretches over 3 miles and you need to travel by train to find!). All children who correctly complete the competitions will receive a certificate.
There is also a drawing competition for the children - the best picture by the children, as judged by Peppa herself, will win a family ticket for use later in 2017 - including Postman Pat, PAW Patrol and The Gruffalo days*.
For an additional charge we will have facepainting by Cre8tive Faces at North Weald from 10.30 to 15.00 at North Weald Station.
We have a small 'Kids Market' at North Weald - selling Peppa Pig Merchandise, traditional sweets from The Candy Bar and 'Peppa Pig' cakes - all kid-sized!
Tickets will be on sale now - see below.
