Trains begin for Shakespeare fans

The first special late-night train to help theatre-goers get home from Stratford-upon-Avon is to run later.

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and Chiltern Railways have arranged a service to leave the Warwickshire town at 1120pm on six Saturdays this year.

The "Shakespeare Special" trains would follow performances such as As You Like It and the Winter's Tale between May and October, Chiltern Railways said.

Leamington Spa is among stops on the service to London Marylebone.
