Synopsis


Featuring a life-size, edible gingerbread house, this production follows Hansel and Gretel as they travel deeper and deeper into a dark, forbidding forest.


There, in the shadows, you might glimpse a figure in a red hood chased by a wolf, or a witch’s hut standing tall on chicken legs; all manner of magical beasts lurk in these woods.


Promenading round the grounds of St Paul’s Church, this immersive fairytale is guaranteed to fright and delight curious children and adventurous adults alike.
