Wands at the ready everyone
It’s time to take a magical journey on board the Wondrous Wizard Express.
You’ll join the teachers from the Grand Old School of Wizardry for your first day of term ... but things aren’t going to plan! Some very important enchanted items have gone missing and the head master is all in a muddle! You’ll have to muster some magic and have your wands at the ready as you go on a journey to find the missing magic and make sure that the first day of term goes without a hitch. Practitioners of the dark arts welcome!
- One return trip from Bury to Rawtenstall hauled by our own Wizard Express steam train
- A wonderous two hour experience with some costumed characters, including super sorcerers and wicked witches
- Magical activities along the line
- Plenty of photo opportunities
Food and drink will be available to purchase from our café on Platform 3/4 at Bury Bolton Street Station and from our on-train buffet.
