Swallows & Amazons

Come aboard the Swallow and join John, Susan, Titty and Roger as they sail to Wildcat Island and meet Nancy and Peggy, the self-proclaimed Amazon Pirates, and the dastardly Captain Flint, in this action-packed adventure.

Arthur Ransome's famous and much-loved children's classic is thrillingly brought to life in Helen Edmundson's gloriously imaginative adaptation with original music by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy.

Following on from last year's critically acclaimed The Secret Garden, this year's summer production is another feel-good show, packed with catchy songs and sword-buckling action that's sure to entertain and delight the whole family.

Don't miss the post-show discussion following the 7pm performance on Wednesday 14 August.
