CHILDREN will be entertained by face painters, jugglers and other circus performers and some tickets will be free on trains this half term.

From Sunday February 17 to Sunday March 3, youngsters aged between five and 15 can travel for free when they travel with an adult on selected services.

The offer is part of Northern's Kids Go Free campaign and is available to customers who book tickets online or via the Northern app.

It will also see entertainers brought in to at stations across the North, with a troop of circus performers on show.

Mark Powles, commercial and customer director at Northern, said: “For the February half term, children aged between five and 15 can travel for free if they travel with an adult. Of course, kids under five always travel free on our trains. It’s a great discount, and gives our customers even more opportunities to discover everything the north of England has to offer.”

Customers should use the promotional code, KIDS at checkout to get the offer.
