Get excited as the holiday favourite, Day Out With Thomas, returns during the Winter 2022 school holidays to the joy of Thomas the Tank Engine fans this year at The Workshop Rail Museum. As an added bonus, there will be a Breakfast with Thomas event for the first time ever! 

From 25 June – 10 July, the museum will be bursting with hands-on activities including the popular Thomas & Friends play pit, Thomas movies and the Thomas Imagination Station where Thomas fans can create Thomas art and craft to take home. Sir Topham Hatt will be there for a special storytime and performance plus everyone will have the chance to meet him and Thomas throughout the day. There is also a large indoor adventure playground, aptly called ‘Nippers Railway’, and coupled with the Museum’s expansive grounds it makes it the perfect place for the kids to let off some steam in a safe, controlled environment. Not forgetting the big kids who have come along for the day there are also historical displays including genuine locos & vintage carriages, a huge model railway and train simulators to keep everyone entertained.

Douglas, Donald, Annie & Clarabel, D199, Trevor the Traction Engine and George the Steamroller will all be there to join in the magical fun. Of course, Sir Topham Hatt will also be there and performing daily shows with songs and storytelling with Thomas.

This year  The Workshop Rail Museum have created a VIP Breakfast experience with Sir Topham Hatt. Enter the museum before it opens, meet Sir Topham Hatt and enjoy a family breakfast platter. It’s then time to take a ride on the land train around the site and get front row seats for the first Thomas show of the day. The breakfast will be held on 25 & 26 June as well as 2, 3, 9 & 10 July.
