On board a 1930s steam train chugging across the Cornish countryside, Strangers On A Train is a one-day thought festival on the Bodmin Railway, designed to celebrate these moments – and spark new creativity, collaboration and intrigue along the way.

Here’s what to expect, all included in your ticket price:

  • Talks from Annie Atkins, graphic designer for films including Wes Anderson’s Oscar-winning Grand Budapest Hotel, and Simon Cohen, entrepreneur and broadcaster who has spread messages of good working with the likes of the Dalai Lama, the UN and Nile Rodgers. Plus more to be announced soon…
  • A delectable dinner from the folk at The Kitchen.
  • Coquettish cocktails from Tarquin’s Gin.
  • Immersive theatre from Scary Little Girls.
  • Live music, storytelling and a whole host of other experiences yet to be announced…

See you on the tracks.
