From the moment his tall, red and white striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home?

Based on the much loved book by Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat is a lively and engaging first theatre experience for young children aged 3+.

Horrible Histories:

Groovy Greeks & Incredible Invaders

Tue 30 Jun - Sat 4 Jul


INCREDIBLE INVADERS takes you through the chronological story of Britain starting from the Roman invasion of AD43, exploring the impact the Romans had on Britain, the conquest of the country, including Hadrian’s Wall and the resistance led by Caratacus and Boudicca. We find out about Roman roads and towns, place names, discovering what the Romans gave Britain and why they left. We learn the reason for the Anglo-Saxon invasions, their settlements and kingdoms, including place names, laws and justice, village life and Sutton Hoo. Viking longboat raids ensue followed by their settlement and struggle for domination against the Anglo-Saxons, particularly Alfred the Great and the Battle of Edington. We explore further Viking invasions, the places in Danelaw and the reasons for Danegeld, leading to Viking Kings and the Norman attack in the Battle of Hastings. This two hour show is a fantastic overview of the making of Britain in a spectacularly dramatic and memorable presentation to help you cover the new history curriculum.


GROOVY GREEKS takes you an exciting adventure through Greek civilisation starting with the Mycenaeans as we journey to Troy to see the Trojan horse. We discover  the differences between growing up in Sparta and Athens and how the two cities dominated the country. We take part in a Greek play and join competitors in the first ever Olympic games. We learn about slaves, discover democracy and meet great philosophers and thinkers. We enter a Greek hospital to test ancient medicine and meet Hippocrates. The Greek gods Zeus, Poseidon, Aphrodite and Athena compete for our attention and we enter the world of myth to confront the minotaur of Crete. When the Persians invade we face them at Thermopylae and take to the seas to shatter their ships at Salamis. This two hour show is a fantastic journey into Ancient Greece in a gripping and awesome production to help you cover the new history curriculum.
