*Statement 17 March 10:40*

Due to the changing situation regarding COVID 19 and Government advice surrounding gatherings, it is with regret we feel it is both necessary and sensible to postpone the Gruffalo event due to take place this weekend. The new date we will be holding this event is now the 27th & 28th June. Customers who have purchased tickets are being contacted individually both by email which will be followed up by a phone call over the next couple of days.

The Railway will continue to operate on the dark blue timetable service. The safety and well-being of our customers and employees is of the utmost importance and we are monitoring the situation daily and following all Government guidelines.

We appreciate your co-operation during this time and thank you all in advance.
