Ingrow Celebration of Film Past and Present – 1st & 2nd May

Over the decades, the Railway has been the venue for many films, the most notable of which is the Railway Children, the film synonymous with the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. But who can forget the Second World War film when Richard Geer set hearts throbbing in Keighley in Yanks. And more recently the Great War film, Testimony of Youth, that brought home the tragic reality of World War 1.

This weekend at Rail Story, Ingrow we are celebrating the Railway and its partner’s part in the making of films past and present.

Throughout the weekend you can enjoy dressing up in a variety of costumes, having your photo in front of Lord Mayor, the promotional engine from the Railway Children film, alongside guided film tours of the Carriage Works museum.

There will be a short film show at the front the Carriage Works museum  between 11am-3pm each day showing various film clips highlighting the various films the railway has taken part in.
