THOMAS and FRIENDS’ ™ ‘DAY OUT WITH THOMAS’ AT HERITAGE RAILWAYS ON TRACK FOR EXCITING 2013 WITH A BRAND NEW LOOK
Families can immerse themselves in the world of Thomas and Friends as never before in 2013, at 20 heritage railways across the country, as HIT Entertainment’s ‘Day Out With Thomas’ (DOWT) events steam into the new year bigger and better than ever.
With a brand-new look, a host of exciting new activities and new Day Out With Thomas themed merchandise available, 2013's DOWT events are supported by Fisher-Price, the home of Thomas & Friends toys, and promise a fun-filled and fabulous day out for all the family at heritage railway locations around Britain. With interactive storytelling, sing-alongs, dressing up and more, together with a ride on a real steam engine, the packed programme on offer provides a perfect trip for all Thomas & Friends fans.
This year the events have been given a vibrant new look which brings the event in line with the CGI television series, while a new dedicated ticketing website makes finding and booking events easier than ever. For the first time the newly launched website (www.dayoutwiththomas.co.uk) provides a centralised ticketing system with the facility to search for events by region or by month, as well as offering a free gift per booking for ticket purchases made online. The DOWT events begin on 9th February and run throughout the year, ending on 22nd December. Also for the first time ever, 2013 will see the program supported by a national television advertising campaign to raise awareness and ticket sales.
HIT Entertainment’s Group Director of Live Events and Attractions, David King said: “These significant changes to our ‘Day Out With Thomas’ programme create a totally immersive experience for Thomas and Friends fans of all ages.”
The fun-filled day out itself sees a host of new activities for 2013. In addition to the opportunity for pre-schoolers and their families to meet and touch their favourite No. 1 blue engine, Thomas the Tank Engine, they can ride behind a real steam engine, meet The Fat Controller, and take part in a host of Thomas and Friends themed activities in the Imagination Station including interactive stories, drawing, games and much more. Plus there are new re-enactments for The Fat Controller to lead and more sing-along songs led by The Fat Controller and his staff on the station platform.
