‘Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair’
Discovered as a baby, Rapunzel is found and brought up by Mother Gothel, a clever herbalist known for her magical healing powers. As Rapunzel grows into a spirited and loving young woman, Mother Gothel locks her away in a tall tower deep in the forest to keep her safe.
Surrounded by thorny vines, Rapunzel’s dreams of escape seem doomed forever until she meets the wandering Tuscan Prince Patrizio. Together the couple hatch a plan to run away, but their happily-ever-after is ruined when they are separated by an evil trick. Alone and lost in the forest, will Rapunzel and Patrizio ever find each other again?
Join us for a lively adventure through the rolling hills and deep dark forests of Italy with music, magic pigs and plenty of surprises!
Rapunzel by Annie Siddons was first presented by Kneehigh Theatre at Battersea Arts Centre in December 2006.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was first published by Frederick Warne & Co. (now part of Penguin Random House UK) in 1902. The World of Peter Rabbit™ will be celebrating 120 years of mischief throughout 2022.
In celebration of the anniversary, Frederick Warne & Co. are pleased to present “The World of Peter Rabbit™ Storytime Trail” a walk-through experience where visitors will be able to immerse themselves in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Little bunnies will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter Rabbit!
With photo opportunities and activities to take part in along the way, there will be plenty of opportunities for families to celebrate Peter Rabbit’s birthday in 2022.
