TrackSAFE with Thomas & Friends

Calling all 2–5 year olds!
Children between the ages of 2 and 5 are invited to attend this free TrackSAFE with Thomas & Friends event in their favourite Thomas gear. Peep peep!
They will meet a life-size Thomas and learn about rail safety.
The chance to meet Thomas in person makes this an unmissable event for your child, but it is more than just fun. TrackSAFE with Thomas & Friends has been especially designed to equip 2–5 year olds with rail safety knowledge that will stay with them for life. It could even save their life.
What your child will experience
Over around one and a half hours children will meet the life-sized Thomas the Tank Engine and join in fun rail safety learning activities with other children.
- 'I know how to be trackSAFE' – a platform safety drawing activity
- 'I can show I am trackSAFE' – to practise strategies for being safe around trains and tracks.
- Practise getting on and off the train safely.
- Story time – a special guest will share Thomas & Friends books in the reading corner.
There will be face painting and a balloon artist, plus the opportunity for your child to explore, and even have a photo taken with Thomas. It's a fun afternoon of rail safety activities designed to help keep your child safe whenever they catch the train with you.
