Burrow Farm Garden Open Air Children’s Theatre
Enjoy an open air theatre production of the children’s book “The Princess and the Giant” in the lovely setting of Burrow Farm Gardens by the marvellous Folksy Theatre.
The Princess & The Giant:
Princess Sophie is fed up. She’s EXHAUSTED and it’s all because the grumpy old giant can’t sleep – his stomps and stamps keep everyone awake ALL night. But Princess Sophie is a resourceful sort of girl and, as she reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she wonders if she might just have the answer. Filled with music, puppetry and wonderful characters, this family show is one not to be missed! Based on the Children’s book by Caryl Hart, illustrated by Sarah Warburton.
There will be a performance at 4pm with gates opening 1 hour before the show.
Tickets on sale online and at the gardens.
