Tickets for the Light Spectacular are currently on sale and are £25 per person.

Entry will include an hour-long illuminated journey from Pickering to Levisham Station, with carriages adorned with 17,000 LEDs.

From the moment passengers enter the platform, spot the train and then climb, on board they’ll be fully immersed in colour, light and sound.

This one-of-a-kind experience will depart from Pickering Station every evening from October 23 to 31 at 6pm and 7.45pm.

Tickets feature a flashing wristband which passengers wear for the journey and is synchronised with the on-board narration and a mix of music to help get the whole family in the party spirit, with famous hits from the 60s right up to present day tunes.

Specially discounted rates for groups of 20 people or more are also available, and can be booked via the NYMR Customer Service team.
