The Polar ExpressTM returns to the heart of Birmingham for 2019

Vintage Trains is proud to announce the return of THE POLAR EXPRESSTM to Birmingham for Christmas 2019. Following its success in 2018 and the immediate call for its return this year, THE POLAR EXPRESSTM schedule commences on Friday November 22nd.

2019 sees some changes; the full theatrical performance will take place on the train and will run for over an hour. Just one premium class will ensure that everyone who buys a ticket receives the highly collectible ceramic mug, a silver bell from Santa and a THE POLAR EXPRESSTM tote bag between two to carry them home. And of course, there’s hot chocolate and cookies for all!

This year’s performance delivers the same magic and charm of the 2004 motion picture, theatrically re-created on the train so that the whole family can immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of this classic children’s tale played out on the train from start to finish.

Perfectly placed in the centre of the city with convenient public transport links and local parking, Moor Street station is again our start and finish point.

The schedule of 4 trains per day starts on November 22nd and runs from Thursday through Sunday until Sunday December 22nd. Tickets are priced at £49 per adult/child. Children aged 3 and under (one per adult) travel free if they accompany an adult and do not need to occupy a seat.

Vintage Trains looks forward to welcoming old and new faces to the Christmas 2019 season.
