Watch the brilliant theatrical adaptation of The Railway Children: Monday 21 December live at 2.00pm (GMT)

A wonderful theatrical version of E Nesbit's The Railway Children will be streamed free on Monday 21st December as part of The Shows Must Go On! series to support the charity Child Bereavement UK.

Mike Kenny's stage adaptation of E Nesbit's classic novel was staged in a purpose built 1,000-seat theatre in London's Kings Cross, complete with a railway track and platforms. Directed by Damian Cruden, it was first produced by York Theatre Royal at the National Railway Museum, York, where it enjoyed two sell-out and critically acclaimed seasons in 2008 and 2009.

You can watch this for free on The Show Must Go On! YouTube Channel from Monday 21st December at 2.00pm (GMT). It will be available on demand for a further 48 hours.
