Imagine one of the greatest stories of all time being told for you, in our beautiful Asylum! Imagine performers doing what they do best - making us laugh, cry and cheer with pleasure! Surely, this alone would be the best night ever, but hold tight! We are not done yet! Imagine swinging and rocking to great music as the sun sets behind the tent... Imagine knowing the moves, feeling the beat and being able to join in... Imagine no more.... Welcome to Midnight's Pumpkin! This is our Ball, a Kneehigh Ball and you are the guests of honour. As you are shown to your seat, the story unfolds.... There is a girl, a step mother and 2 ugly sisters - ring any bells? As the night falls, we will all be the guests at our own Royal Wedding; tipsy, tingling and remembering there is indeed magic and romance in the world, especially on this night, in this Cornish field! There will be food and drink, music and dancing. Why not dress up and have a chance to impress the prince yourself? Learn the dance, be part of the story... The Asylum can be found on a field belonging to the Tywarnhayle Farm (often used for the annual St Agnes steam rally), just off the Chiverton Cross roundabout, mid Cornwall. By Public Transport:Performers Audrey Brisson, Phil Brodie, Stuart Goodwin, Patrycja Kujawska, Eva Magyar, Stuart McLoughlin, Mike Shepherd.
