Don’t forget to climb aboard the Rugby Express and embark on a fun-filled adventure at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum tomorrow (Friday) night.

Visitors can also climb aboard a land train which departs from the art gallery and museum and takes passengers on a short tour of the town centre.

Stops include Fantasy World, with face-painting, messy play and Old World, where visitors can explore a Victorian station platform.

A range of railway-themed arts activities take place in Mini World while visitors who stop off at the Engineering Workshop can discover how trains work in the company of Mad Science and create cog crafts.

The Art Stop hosts a range of train-inspired craft activities while the Trash Drummers provide musical entertainment at Grand Central Station.

And passengers in need of refreshment can visit the Rehydration Station where the Art Gallery and Museum’s Rocco’s Love Coffee shop serves a range of drinks and snacks.

Night at Your Museum starts at 5.30pm and runs until 9.30pm.

Jessica Hartshorn, Rugby Art Gallery and Museum’s learning and outreach officer, said: “Rugby’s rich railway heritage provides the perfect inspiration for this year’s Night at Your Museum celebration.”

Tickets cost £1 for two hours in the centre, with admission times at 5.30pm, 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
