HUNDREDS of kids packed into The Workshops Rail Museum yesterday for the opening of the country's biggest Thomas and Friends school holiday event.

This year's celebration sees Thomas and his friends bringing a little bit of the English summer with them on their post-Christmas holidays.

The seaside theme was more than welcome as Ipswich turned on muggy conditions for visitors from across south-east Queensland.

Brisbane mum Kath West brought her little ones, Sophie, 3 and Ben, 1 back to Ipswich these holidays after having a great time at last year's Workshops holiday show.

"They just put on great activities for the kids - it is a great set-up," Mrs West said.

The holiday show continues until February 3.

For information and ticket prices, phone 3432 5100 or visit the website at theworkshops.qm.qld.gov.au.
