Based on the original story by Carlo Collodi, award winning Strangeface bring an extraordinary mix of masks, puppets, live music and song to this tale of wild mischief and temptation.
In a style closer to Roald Dahl than Disney, we are taken on a fantastical journey from Pinoccio’s first moments as a talking log through a madcap series of scrapes and escapades with nefarious rascals Fox and Cat, a sinister puppet master, fairies, a terrible dogfish and a trip to the Land of Toys.
In turns thrilling and heart-warming, moving and comical, Strangeface bring an inimitable magic to a masterpiece of surreal fantasy. A fabulous Christmas treat for children and families. Suitable for all children from 5 – 100 yrs.
Price: Adult £8; Children £5; Family £22 (a saving of £4 for 2 + 2)

New Perspectives –Entertaining Angels
With so many rural communities concerned about the potential closure of their local church, yet so few people actually attending church services, this play looks at what people mean when they say that the church is at the heart of the community.
The compelling story of a rural parish in decline, a parish priest facing both a crisis of faith and the collapse of his marriage, and the strange figure who arrives in the village one day with an answer to everyone’s prayers.
A powerful evening of theatre for believers and non-believers alike from this highly acclaimed East Midlands based company.
