Tickets On Sale for This Year’s NYMR Light Spectacular Event


The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) has announced its very own celebration of light. And people can purchase tickets for the return of its annual Light Spectacular event, with the popular Yorkshire attraction is expecting an early surge for tickets, with demand already high.

The hugely popular audio and visual sensory experience will depart from Pickering station every evening during October Half-Term, from the 22nd to the 30th October 2022 at 6pm and 7.45pm.

Tickets for this family fun and interactive journey, pulled by a heritage steam train, are £30 per person. And that includes an hour-long illuminated experience from Pickering to Levisham station. To keep you entertained the NYMR’s compare, Voice Over Man, from the telly box, will be on hand and get you in the mood for a party. Passengers also become part of the show with a synchronised flashing wristband to wear for the duration of the journey.


“A fantastic event”

With carriages adorned with 17,000 LEDs, from the moment you enter the platform, spot the train and then climb on board. The whole family will be fully immersed in colour, light and sound. And that will get you dancing in your seat!

Luke Hudman is Marketing Manager from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. He said: “It’s a fantastic event that just makes you smile from the moment you see the train – even the grown-ups! Seeing people dancing and singing along on board brightens up those dark nights. We were already being asked about tickets before we opened this year, so I recommend you book yours early!”

Specially discounted rates for groups of 20 people or more are also available. These can be booked via the NYMR Customer Service Team at

In addition, the award-winning attraction has also announced the return of some of its popular visitor events. The Annual Steam Gala (22-25 September) and Santa Specials throughout December.
