    Join us for a week of ghoulish goings on here at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway between Saturday 22nd October- Sunday 30th October! The spookiest season of all is just around the corner and we’ll be running plenty of special activities at the railway to get the whole family in the spirit. With decorated stations and cafés, museum activity and exhibition, a pumpkin competition, double-headed trains, and a line quiz ‘Witch Trail’ with a small prize upon completion, your trip to the railway in October half-term will be jam-packed with frightening fun.

    ENTER OUR PUMPKIN COMPETITION Each child bringing a carved pumpkin to the railway will travel free when accompanied by a full paying adult (pre-purchased online child tickets can be refunded upon arrival in the ticket office). If details are left with the pumpkin (which will be displayed and may feature on our social media channels) you will be entered into a competition for the best pumpkin carving. The railway’s creative team will judge this on Sunday 30th October with the lucky winner receiving a free return ticket for a family of four and a sweetie goody bag.

    HALLOWEEN FUN AND GAMES Our younger visitors are also invited to take part in a ‘witch-trail’ quiz as they travel up the line. Each witch will reveal a letter and when they are all added to the special sheet provided, a spooky word will be revealed. There will be a small prize for each correctly completed sheet handed in on the day of travel. On the Monday – Friday of this half-term week we can offer the added spectacle of some double header trains (pulled by two steam engines rather than just one). These will feature on the 10:25 departure from Ravenglass to Irton Road with full line returns departing Ravenglass at 11:25 and 13:50. These arrangements are subject to availability and change without notice due to operational reasons.

    Terms & Conditions: Pumpkin Carving – all pumpkins left for the judging cannot be returned after competition close. Pumpkin Judging – winners will be notified by email within 48 hours of the judging date 30th October. Free Kids – One free place for each child with a carved pumpkin travelling with a full fare paying adult. Online pre-booked tickets will be refunded on the day of travel. Offer valid from Saturday 22nd October to Sunday 30th October. Please note trains may change to published times without notice due to operational reasons.

    Over the weekend of the 5th and 6th November, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway will play host to two locomotives from the Whistlestop Valley’s Kirklees Light Railway. The locomotives will be pulling trains as part of a mini gala weekend.

    The visiting locomotives are Fox and Badger which are two small tank engines that were specially constructed for the Whistlestop Valley’s Kirklees Light Railway in West Yorkshire around 30 years ago. Fox is loosely based on a locomotive that was built in Leeds and exported to India. Badger is a saddle tank locomotive and draws on the design of locomotives built for industrial use in the early part of the 20th Century.

    Both locomotives have been heavily modified, drawing on ideas and technology pioneered by Argentinian engineer L D Porta. Porta believed that the potential of steam locomotives was never fully developed before modernisation in the 1960s. Joining the visiting locomotives will be Katie from Ravenglass Railway Museum. Dating from 1896, Katie was restored to use in 2018 after being virtually dismantled 70 years before.

    Tickets will be available online soon and on the day.

    Join Jo from JAG Outdoors for a night-time walk in the forest! We will cover up to 4 miles and hope for some crisp clear skies and lots of stars to explore at various points along the route. If the stars don’t appear, we will still enjoy a beautiful experience walking through the forest and enjoying the peaceful trails, enhanced sounds, and the “dark” sky scenery.

    If we are gifted with stars, as an amateur astronomer, I can help you find the main constellations and using star maps you can work out more, or just enjoy a peaceful moment under the stars.
    Well behaved dogs on leads welcome (not appropriate for young puppies due to walk length).

    Please come dressed for the weather, while we are hoping for clear skies that will mean cold temperatures! And the Cumbrian weather can also offer many other things. Boots or trail shoes are recommended.

    The Ciderhouse Rebellion in Concert

    18:30 -21:30
    01-06-24

     

    “Two virtuoso musicians playing some of the most startling and original music you will ever encounter. Compelling, exciting and utterly original” says Phil Beer. Adam Summerhayes has been described as a ‘Paganini of the traditional violin’ (fRoots) and his remarkable playing has been lauded worldwide: “Like the direct descendant of the devil’s violinist Paganini” (Badische Zeitung); ‘Astonishing, all-out virtuosity’. (New York Times); “Intoxicating … virtuoso fiddle playing” (The Times); ‘breath-taking violin wizardry’ (stuff.co.nz). This duo, though, is not just about fireworks and virtuosity. Profound and eloquent, epic, haunting and dramatic, Adam Summerhayes’s ‘utterly compelling’ playing (BBC Music magazine) entwines with master accordionist Murray Grainger’s subtly woven tapestries of sound – “Grainger’s accordion with Summerhayes’s fiddle are especially beautiful” (Songlines). The pair play trad. tunes, particularly from the North East, write their own tunes and specialise in creating music in the moment.

    Rosehill Theatre
    Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven CA28 6SE, UK

    Winner of The Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, Amy Trigg’s remarkable debut play Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me is a hilarious, heart-warming tale about how shit our wonderful lives can be.

    For a long time I didn’t know how it’d work.
    Or what I’d be able to feel.
    People would ask me if I could have sex and I’d feign shock and act wildly offended whilst secretly wanting to grab them by the shoulders and be like “I don’t know, Janet!”

    Juno was born with spina bifida and is now clumsily navigating her twenties amidst street healers, love, loneliness – and the feeling of being an unfinished project.

    Alun Cochrane: Stuff and Nonsense

    20:00 -21:20
    01-06-24
    Rosehill Theatre
    Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven CA28 6SE, UK

    Comedian Alun Cochrane has been seen on various TV comedy shows over the years, including Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of 10 Cats – he found these hard as he didn’t like interrupting people.

    He’s also known as The Cockerel from Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show and the grumpily funny Centrist Dad guy they use pretty frequently on Radio 4.

    This autumn, Alun is touring a show of both stand-up material (Stuff) and of his high quality on the spot frippery, impro, crowd work (Nonsense).

    Stuff in the “Stuff” half may include some stuff about *actual* stuff. He has a jumper he might discuss, and he thinks his new car jokes could make the final edit – those are new jokes about his rather old car, which is pretty new to him, clear? There could be stuff on funerals, free speech, or feminism, and maybe a bit or two on the muddled mess of modern masculinity.

    Dr Jekyll

    Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

    20:00 -21:00

    Rosehill Theatre
    Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven CA28 6SE, UK

    Brother Wolf is proud to present the return of its award-winning solo drama, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats.

    Adapted and performed by award-winning actor, writer and producer James Hyland, this “powerful, intense, spellbinding and disturbing” show (The Yorkshire Times) takes a unique approach to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of civilisation versus savagery, good versus evil.

    During his final lecture on the duality of humankind, the respectable Dr Jekyll reveals his strange association with the mysterious Edward Hyde and the shocking truth about his identity: that Hyde, unlike other human beings, is not only fundamentally evil, but also the very definition of it.

    Reviewed as “a memorable, compelling and five star piece of theatre” (Everything Theatre), the production has been hailed by critics and audiences alike, winning Best Male Act (Solo Fest 2013).

    A box office hit, its success is paralleled by Brother Wolf’s other acclaimed works including A Christmas Carol – As told by Jacob Marley (deceased), the “definitive telling of A Christmas Carol” (Redditch Standard), winner of Best Performer in Theatre (Fringe Report Awards 2012).
