“Holy hound dog! “You Me Bum Bum Train” the theatrical experience of my life. Exhilarating, scary, brilliant, breathtaking and SO original” - Stephen Fry
You Me Bum Bum Train caused a sensation in 2010 when they won the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award and the Evening Standard Theatre Award for ‘Outstanding Newcomer’.
The show is an exhilarating, participatory adventure where individual passengers journey through a maze of live scenes where they are catapulted into unimaginable, life changing situations. It is created solely by a community of volunteers who are inspired by giving an unsuspecting passenger access to a range of worlds no one person would encounter in their lifetime.
