Santa Specials!

Just a quick post for anyone who’s missing the steam trains and getting excited about Christmas!

The Midland Railway is running Santa Specials for all the younger members of the family in the run up to Christmas. There’s a Santa’s grotto on the train, so the kids can meet Santa during the train ride and receive a gift! There’s also a mince pie and a miniature bottle of spirits for the adults! And there’s a also a show from the Pinxton puppets in a heated marquee, as well as unlimited rides on the steam railway!

The Santa Specials will run on the following dates: 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, 18, 22, 23 and 24 December. Booking is strongly advised.

Alternatively, there’s the Festive Day Out With Thomas taking place from 27 December to 31 December. Kids can take a trip on the festive Thomas The Tank Engine train, meet the Fat Controller, recieve a gift and visit The Imagination Station with balloon modellers, DVD Shows, Thomas Play Train Table, colouring activities and temporary tattoos!

Back to indiepop-related things, we’ll be putting the Indietracks 2012 festival tickets on sale very shortly. Hopefully within the next week or so. Please pop back here soon!
