Our Line 2018

Various dates from Saturday 31 March to Saturday 28 April

A story you can listen to on the train from Darlington to Bishop Auckland

A Jabberwocky Market pop-up theatre event from Luxi, Northern & the Bishop Line

“I never met my great grandmother Nora, but she hovers around the edges of my mother’s memory.  A tiny woman, she died when my mam was about 7. She remembers her baby teeth coming out at the time.  Nora’s story is woven into the landscape that you travel through from Darlington to Bishop Auckland on the train.”

A brand new collaboration bringing pop-up theatre events onto the world’s first passenger train line. Hannah Bruce & Co have created a wonderful story to listen to that is available to anyone with a smart device, via a unique code on the TlotT app.

Our Line is free for anyone with a valid train ticket (and access to their own smart device). There will be Jabberwocky Market stewards on the trip with you, so it’s available on specific trains.

If you’d like more details please email [email protected] and put ‘Our Line‘ in the subject.

Tailored trips for your GROUP of 8 or more can be arranged for a small charge, email [email protected] for details.
