The forest - strange, eerie, mysterious, magnificent...

A place of magic and surprise, where nothing is ever quite what it seems... 

Join Magnard Ensemble to explore the wonderful and whimsical world of Roald Dahl through music and narration, and meet Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs and some Dirty Beasts!

2016 marked the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth and celebrations took place all over the country. Magnard Ensemble teamed up with actress Rebecca Kenny to launch the Revolting Rhymes and Marvellous Music project based on musical settings of his works by British composers, Paul Patterson and Martin Butler. Since then, they have been touring festivals and venues across the UK including The Royal Opera House, Hay Festival and BBC Radio 3's In Tune programme.

Suitable for ages 6+

Please note: this event is not included in the multi-buy discount for Telling Tales

Stay and Play...

Let the magic continue with Nick Hennessey, as he brings the worlds of stories and folktales to life in Moss and Stones, Skin and Bones.
