Three of Aesop's classic fables – The Ants &The Grasshopper, The Fox & The Stork and The Hare & The Tortoise – have been woven together into this delightful, funny and engaging play for children of all ages.  Harvest time is nearly here and there’s still so much work for the animals to do to make sure they will last through the winter.  Can they put their disagreements aside and get the job done in time for the festival?

2.30pm: A TALE OF ROBIN HOOD - c. 35 mins, recommended age 7+
*This production includes sword fights & staged violence *

With King Richard the Lionheart absent, corruption and injustice are rife in England.  The country cries out for a champion – and in the heart of the forest, a legend stirs...  Join Robin and his friends on a daring mission to save Sir Guy of Gisborne’s prisoner, FriarTuck, from the hangman's noose.


3.30pm: PERSEPHONE & THE POMEGRANATE SEEDS - c. 35 mins, recommended age 7+ 

There are many versions of the classic Greek myth that explains how the seasons came to be – this is ours!  Learn how close the goddess Demeter came to destroying the world when her beloved daughter Persephone was stolen away by Hades, the lord of the Underworld – and how Zeus and Hermes searched for a solution that everyone could live with.  Were they successful?  You’ll have to see the show to find out…
