The Grimm Sisters by Scratchworks Theatre

Saturday 25th June at 2pm


You know the Brothers Grimm? The famous storytellers…or story stealers more like! Their sisters were the true brains behind the books, but thanks to a treacherous father, a nasty curse and a great big dollop of bad luck, you’ve probably never heard of them.

King Arthur from The Last Baguette

Saturday 16th July at 2.30pm

Somewhere in Britain, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not.

A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist and magic.
