UPDATE: Tickets for The Polar Express have now sold out.

A festive experience like no other is coming to Mid-Norfolk Railway (MNR) this December.

Staff at the MNR will bring the magic of the 2004 film, The Polar Express, to life for families to enjoy from 1-23 December.

The journey will re-create the sights and sounds of the children's tale, featuring dancing chefs and waiters serving cookies and hot chocolate, a live retelling of The Polar Express story, an opportunity to meet Santa and carol singing.

At Dereham Station, children will also be able to write to Santa, paint a Christmas decoration and colour in their favourite Polar Express characters.

Organisers said: 'We encourage guests to wear pyjamas just as in the film. Children love it and if you can persuade our older guests, mums, dads, granny and grandpa to also join in, the atmosphere in the train comes alive for a truly magical experience!'
