Darly is an enchanting, artist made, old wooden train carriage stuffed with stories, images, sounds and scenes for families to explore.

Created by visual Artist Hannah Fox and Sound Artist Dan Fox, Darly will be an enchanting and playful interactive sculpture, a curiosity box like no other, exploring the past and future of industry, rail and pioneering in the North East over the last 200 years.

Rather than a history lesson, Darly will be a miniature adventure, like opening the pages of a beautiful and strange storybook; glimpse into other worlds, encounter dreams, nightmares, characters and song. Involving shadow images, animation, soundscape and live music, Darly captures the wonderful dream world of the railway.

Darly is at the Festival all weekend, but will be animated between:
10.30am-11.30am, 12noon – 1.00pm, 2.00pm -3.00pm and 3.30pm – 4.30pm.

Darly is funded by our partners Darlington Building Society.
Celebrating 190th anniversary of the world’s first steam passenger train between Stockton and Darlington.
