Rupert’s first trip to a West End show

Rupert Turner, only five years old, swapped the quaint city of Durham for the sparkling lights of London, embarking on a life-changing adventure onboard the LNER train, accompanied by his parents.

From navigating the bustling underground to witnessing the majestic Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, he felt like a proper Londoner immersed in the heart of the capital. The grandest moment of all was attending the West End show, “Newsies”, and heading backstage to meet his favourite actor, even ‘catching’ one of the show's props – a cherished souvenir that would forever remind him of this unforgettable day in London. 

With aspirations to grace the stage himself one day, Rupert's dreams became a reality, all thanks to LNER.
