CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.
Following 2011's Treasure Island
, we once again return to King Street and the open air for a summer show to set imaginations aflutter. We unfold a sparkling, alfresco version of the famous storytelling slave's parables, adapted by the wonderful Mr Michael Morpurgo (War Horse, Private Peaceful
). Expect many of the old favourites including The Tortoise and the Hare, The Sun and The Wind and of course, The Boy Who Cried Wolf with plenty of new ones thrown into the mix and all told in a summery whirl of colour, music, song and mischief.Performers Chris Bainchi, Benji Bower, Will Bower, Lucy Tuck, Tom Wainwright.
