LOOK: All aboard at Rugby gallery's celebration of railway heritage

Rugby Editorial 19th May, 2016 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016   0

A TRAIN was spotted in Rugby town centre last Friday when A Night at Your Museum celebrated the town’s railway heritage.

The Rugby Express rolled into the Art Gallery and Museum, taking visitors on a journey packed with railway-inspired entertainment and activities.

Stops included Fantasy World, with face-painting, messy play and stories from the Dragon Whisperer, and Old World, where visitors explored a Victorian station platform complete with costumed demonstrators.

Railway-themed arts activities took place in Mini World, while visitors who stopped off at the Engineering Workshop discovered how trains work.

The Art Stop hosted a range of train-inspired craft activities, while the Trash Drummers provided musical entertainment.

The Mini World created on the night is now on display in the Floor One Gallery until Thursday May 26.
