Princess and the Pig with Folksy Theatre 16th August 2017


We’re delighted to welcome back Folksy Theatre this summer, with their new family-friendly musical adaptation of Jonathan Emmett’s ‘The Princess & The Pig’, on Wednesday 16 August, 6.30pm.

There’s been a dreadful mix-up in the royal nursery. Priscilla the princess has switched places with Pigmella, the farmer’s new piglet! The kindly farmer and his wife believe it’s the work of a good witch. The ill-tempered King and Queen squarely blame a bad witch. It’s the sort of thing that happens all the time in fairy tales!
Bring along your picnics, blankets, folding chairs plus friends and family to enjoy this wonderful open-air production, filled with music, and puppetry!
