The event will include free Thomas related activities and a challenge to make the longest Thomas cake.

Visitors to the event will be asked to bake and bring along a Thomas Carriage Cake following a recipe from Patron of the National Autistic Society, Jane Asher.

The carriages will be added to a Thomas cake made by Asher in the attempt to make the world's longest Thomas the Tank Engine Train out of cake.

Each person to get involved will receive a free gift and the chance to meet the Fat Controller. Competitions to win Thomas prizes will also take place throughout the day.
