It is with a heavy heart that we
have made the difficult decision to cancel our Easter and June Days Out With Thomas event
in light of the Covid-19 situation. We know you and your children will be
disappointed and we are very sorry. There
are two reasons we have made this decision:
With government advice as
it stands, we are set to lose our volunteer army to self-isolation as the
large majority of them fall within the vulnerable category, and we
need dozens of them to help run each day of this four-day event. We hope
you understand that we cannot ask them to put themselves at risk at this
there are times during A Day Out With Thomas that parts of our railway get
quite crowded and obviously government advice is currently to avoid these situations.
Our ticketing agent, Quay Tickets, will be in touch with you directly in the next few days
with regards to moving or refunding your tickets.
