Mattel Celebrates 'Thomas & Friends: Digs & Discoveries' with Special Screening at Thomas Land at Drayton Manor

An exclusive Thomas and Friends screening event took place at Drayton Manor, the home of Thomas Land, on Saturday 6th July 2019, as Mattel pulled out the stops to celebrate the new Thomas and Friends: Digs and Discoveries specials this season.

Channel 5 Milkshake presenters Kemi Majeks and Derek Moran hosted the event, performing their well-known dance routines from the popular pre-school television strand. More than 200 fans including influencers, press and competition winners also enjoyed pre-screening entertainment from The Fat Controller and Rusty and Dusty. All visitors were also treated to a first look at the new specials as Thomas embarks on his latest global adventure.

The 2 x 22” episodes, All Tracks Lead to Rome and Mines of Mystery, see Thomas discover a new world of wonder as he explores the buried history of Italy. Themed around construction and exciting archaeological digs, new characters including Stefano the Super Cruiser, Brenda the Bulldozer, and engines Gina, Lorenzo and Beppe all help Thomas on his latest adventure.

To bring the specials to life, new characters Gina, Lorenzo and Beppe and Roman Thomas join the Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Motorised engine range, which lets pre-schoolers recreate their favourite scenes.

The Digs & Discoveries specials will be previewed exclusively at the 4D Cinema at Drayton Manor for park guests from 7th to 14th July, and will be launching on DVD in October. Thomas & Friends airs seven days a week on Milkshake in the U.K. and regularly on Nick Jr. in the USA.
