Swindon railway station was the setting of an impromptu musical performance as the cast of Rocky Horror show paid a visit to the town. 

Actors from the show brought their customary chaos and zany characters to the town's travel hub with Joe Allen's Eddie and Richard Meek's Brad visiting the station on Tuesday, August 29, prior to the first performance of the show at the Wyvern Theatre

Great Western Railway passengers and staff were treated to an unexpected rendition of the pelvic thrusting and ever-popular Time Warp from the smash cult stage hit from Richard O'Brien.

Brad and Eddie, in their show costumes, also spent time 'helping' customers, inspecting tickets, making announcements and even restocking the Rocky Horror leaflets. 

The Rocky Horror Show has been a regular at the town's biggest theatre for many years. Last year Strictly Come Dancing's Ore Oduba played Brad, and this year another Strictly alumni, Joe McFadden, is playing the narrator. 

Laura James, theatre director at the Wyvern Theatre said: “We are absolutely delighted that The Rocky Horror Show is back in Swindon.

"It was great to have an absolute blast and cause some mischief and mayhem with our friends at GWR and hopefully give passengers a little light relief during their journey."

Amanda Burns, GWR's sales and marketing director added: "We were thrilled to welcome the cast of The Rocky Horror Show as they brought their platforms to the platform for our customers and colleagues at Swindon station.

"It’s not every day that the stage comes to the station, and we are delighted to work with our partners at the Wyvern as we deliver services to some of the country's most iconic venues and destinations."
