Sunset Series: Five Children and It

Based on the classic children's novel by Edith Nesbit, with live music and puppetry throughout, children and adults alike will love this ever-popular story reimagined for the stage.

  • Booking essential

The five children - Cyril, Anthea, Robert, Jane, and their baby brother, known as the Lamb - are playing in a gravel pit one morning when they uncover a rather grumpy and sometimes tricky Psammead, a sand-fairy with the ability to grant wishes. Join them on their adventures as they learn what it is to be careful what you wish for!
