The Princess and The Giant

August 4, 2018 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

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.

Bring along your picnics, blankets and folding chairs to enjoy this wonderful open-air performance!
