Hansel & Gretel are coming to town!

It’s only November, but we’re all starting to get in to the Christmas spirit. With the John Lewis advert hitting our screens, shops playing I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and tinsel every which way we turn, Christmas is well and truly on it’s way!

Here at The Courtyard, we can almost smell the gingerbread in the run up to this years children’s Christmas show, Hansel & Gretel. We can’t wait to see all those little faces as they come out of this magical tale of a brother and sister duo tempted by a house made of sweets and forced to escape the witch! This family show is perfect for our younger audience, so if you think your little ones are too little for Panto, this is the perfect opportunity to let them experience the magic of theatre at Christmas time, and one that they won’t forget in a hurry.

Hansel & Gretel is full of sugar, spice and all things nice… you and your  little ones will encounter magic, mystery, stunning puppetry, interaction and lots of singing and dancing to light up little imaginations!
