2016 marks the 110th anniversary of the publication of Edith Nesbit’s much loved classic children’s book The Railway Children, which has subsequently been adapted for the stage and screen, most famously in the 1970 film version directed by Lionel Jeffries and starring Jenny Agutter, Bernard Cribbins, Dinah Sheridan and Sally Thomsett. The Railway Children - Live on Stage is an award winning production of Mike Kenny’s stage adaptation of E. Nesbit’s novel which is currently running at Kings Cross Theatre until Sunday 8 January.
The Stansted Express website is available in five different languages and train tickets can be booked online up to six months in advance, offering the chance to plan ahead, and conveniently book transfers, show tickets and accommodation, moving the company’s website another step towards a seamless travel booking service.

The ability to book discounted theatre tickets and accommodation whilst arranging your transfer to or from the airport on the Stansted Express adds another level of convenience, value and choice to customers.”
