Hansel and Gretel, the baker’s children, go to visit Aunty, who lives on the other side of the deep dark forest. However … on their way back they get lost. The only person around to help is an old woman who turns out to be a very wicked witch in disguise. The day could be saved by the Prince they just happen to have met, two blundering henchmen, a fairy and Aunty. Who knows what might be in store?

This year we are having an extra matinee to cope with high demand.
