Postman Pat on the Battlefield Railway, Leicestershire (2 to 4 May)


Come and meet those famous residents of Greendale – Postman Pat and Jess the Cat, at Shackerstone Station.

Pat and Jess will be appearing throughout the weekend to see the train and wave hello to their fans (little and LARGE!).

There are a few competitions to get involved with…

Pat has misplaced his letters somewhere around the Station. Can you help him find his lost letters?
Where are Pat’s friends? Are they hiding around the station somewhere?
Are you any good at drawing and colouring in?

Visit the Traveling Post Office, see how the mail was sorted on the railways and don’t forget to post your letter there!
