Young story lovers will be able to enjoy live performances of two of their favourite literary tales this summer – and you could be at one of the performances, thanks to our competition.

The Chapterhouse Theatre Company has adapted The Railway Children and Peter Pan for open-air venues around the country.

The Railway Children is set in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside and tells the story of three children, who find a home in a beautiful but isolated village after the mysterious disappearance of their father.

Much-loved fairytale Peter Pan focuses on Peter – the boy who never grew up – as he goes on adventures in the magical island of Neverland and encounters mermaids, fairies and cruel Captain Hook with his friends Wendy, Michael and John Darling.

Both shows will be performed in stunning surroundings as The Railway Children takes place at the Avon Valley Railway Heritage Centre in Bristol, whereas Peter Pan will be performed closer to home at Tyntesfield in Wraxall.

The Railway Children will be at the Avon Valley Railway, in Bitton Station, Bristol, at 7pm on August 24-25.

Tickets, priced £16-70, are available from 01179 325538 or online via the Avon Valley Railway website.

Peter Pan will be at Tyntesfield, in Clevedon Road, Wraxall, at 7.30pm on September 3.

Tickets, priced £8-48, are available from 08442 491895 or online via the National Trust website.

The Mercury has teamed up with The Chapterhouse Theatre Company to offer a lucky reader the chance to win a family ticket to the show of their choice.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.

The competition will close at 10am on June 17.
