ABOUT CRONGTON KNIGHTS

Following the acclaimed tour of Noughts & Crosses, York Theatre Royal and Pilot Theatre present the world première adaptation of Crongton Knights, Alex Wheatle’s Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize Winner.

Life isn’t easy on the Crongton Estate but when the magnificent six set out to help a friend in trouble, much larger problems come their way.

Although, with the help of a few good friends nothing is impossible and lessons learned the hard way are ones you’ll never forget. That’s when a crew becomes a family.

Crongton Knights will open at Belgrade Theatre Coventry from 8-22 February 2020 and will then tour to York Theatre Royal from 25-29 February. Tickets on sale now.
