As part of the 'Teignmouth Together' Train and Railway project taking place, children can take part in ths 'Tracking Trains Competition'.

Either pick up an entry form (inside the green A5 Teignmouth Together booklet, available at Pavilions Teignmouth Box Office, Teignmouth Library, Teign Heritage Centre, and TAAG) or download one here.

Then, find the letters on the train window stickers (you need to look carefully), located around the town. There are lots of letters in and around the Pavilions, plus a letter  in the window at each of the following locations: Teignmouth Library, Teign Heritage Centre, TAAG, and The Alice Cross Centre. There are also letters to be found in  the windows of shops, cafes and organisations located in and around The Triangle, Regent Street, Wellington Street, Teign Street, and Somerset Place* (see below for some more clues of locations!).  

The letters spell out three famous trains. Once you have guessed the three train names, fill out your entry form and drop it in to the Box Office at Pavilions Teignmouth, by 31st August 2019 (Box Office is open 10am to 3pm Monday to Saturday and 1 hour before any film or show).

The draw will take place on 1st September - prizes include a Peco model railway set, Lego Harry Potter train building set, Pavilions Teignmouth children's theatre tickets.

Good luck with your train spotting!
