This year, Steam in Lights features brand new narration for the exciting family-friendly experience, which begins at the magically-lit Bridgnorth station. There’s a live performance on platform 2 with entertainment from Grandma Cackler and her grandson before the dramatic arrival of the breath-taking steam-hauled train, adorned with tens of thousands of colourful lights.
Before departure, guests will have the opportunity to purchase tasty, festive treats and drinks from the refreshment room to enjoy on their journey.
Once settled in the comfort and warmth of their private compartment or at a socially-distanced table, passengers will embark on a thrilling journey past twinkling scenes, full of lights, forest creatures and mysterious characters, accompanied by music and narration. This year the number and range of lineside displays has been expanded to ensure this is a truly unforgettable experience.
Departures from Bridgnorth are on selected dates between 19th November and 23rd December, with up to three evening departures. Tickets start at £20 per person, bookable in compartments for up to four or six people, or at socially-distanced tables for two. Carriages will be cleaned regularly and the railway will ensure that all appropriate social distancing restrictions are in place. All bookings are covered by the SVR’s Covid Guarantee.
Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Friday 2nd July at www.svr.co.uk or by phone on 01562 757900. The SVR has produced a short promotional film for its Steam in Lights events, which is viewable at https://youtu.be/nsRjZP4LNRE
This year, the SVR will also run its hugely popular Santa trains, departing from Kidderminster, and expects to put tickets for these on sale in the coming weeks.
