Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Tumble through the topsy-turvy world of Twelfth Night in this high energy family storytelling.

Follow the tale of shipwrecked* twins Viola and Sebastian and their attempts to be reunited. Disguise, confusion, romance and colourful socks abound in a hilarious romp through the lives of Duke Orsino, Countess Olivia and their households.

Storyteller Olivia Mace will entertain you with this tale of antics and hopeless romantics. Olivia is also a writer, actor and podcaster (but not a countess).

*Shakespeare really liked a shipwreck.

Time, thou must untangle this, not I.
