Hansel & Gretel

Head down to the forest this Christmas as Kneehigh Theatre lead you through a spellbinding world of wit and wonder, earthly delights and eerie woods.

Times are tough and food is scarce for poor Hansel and Gretel, but who could ignore the lure of a magical gingerbread house and its boundless sweet treats?

Join us for temptations impossible to resist as this classic fairytale is told with lively music, amazing gadgets and gizmos... and the help of some rather unlucky rabbits.

For children and brave adults everywhere. Recommended for ages eight and over.
