“From Speed, Steam & Sumptuous Dining to Tracks into the Trenches”
“A VERY powerful audio and visual experience indeed.” ” Loved every minute of it- brilliant illustrations!” “Fantastic exhibition, it brings everything to life. Thank you.” Audience Feedback.
In commemoration of the centenary of the end of World War One we have been commissioned by London and North Eastern Railway Coach Association
to write & direct an audio immersive experience to take place in an original WW1 Dining Car under restoration, combining a commissioned audio soundscape using real life testimonies from members of the NER Battalion.
This new exhibition for Railway in Wartime 2018 at North Yorkshire Moors Railway merges the factual story behind the design of this beautifully ornate and unique Victorian/Edwardian coach (ECJS 189) with the fictional tale of Sam ‘Nipper’ Perkins, on board Pantry Boy & WW1 Soldier.
Exhibition includes real life testimonies from members of the NER Battalion.
Exhibition Dates: 12th -14th October 2018
Times: 10am – 4pm
Venue: The Atkins Carriage Shed, NYMR, Pickering, North Yorkshire.
Please note that unfortunately, due to the age of the coach, there is no wheelchair access.
