Blazek Boron has been a train conductor for many, many years. He has become jaded with passengers making his life difficult. One night, while training a new conductor, Blazek notices an old familiar smell, like fennel. He knows this smell all too well. It signals the imminent arrival of the Sloven: the train monster made up of lost things left behind by passengers, and disaster always follows in its wake!

Can Blazek convince his young recruit of the imminent danger before it is too late, and will the nervous passengers complicate matters further? What does the train monster want and can it be stopped in time? Join us for this wonderful adventure on the railway!

Fun for the whole family The Sloven by Stefan Grabinski is performed by theatre company, A Wonderful Adventure. They specialise in the fantastical, magical and historical.
