Robin Hood will be swapping Sherwood Forest for Rushmere Woods as The Storyteller Theatre Company help you get the summer holidays off to a fantastic start with an entrancing and highly entertaining piece of specialist children's theatre at 1pm and 3pm on Friday 25th July. This is an event perfect for the whole family!

In one of the Wood's beautiful glades, under the natural cover of the trees, the company's three professional actors will transform the space into a magical, intimate theatre, and with the use of soft toys and puppets, will recreate one of England's most well‐known and loved classical stories.

As a 'Theatre in Education' company, The Storyteller Theatre Company has performed in schools and nurseries, and their highly visual style is guaranteed to capture even the youngest of minds. The nursery manager at one of their recent performances commented after their show, "The children, staff and parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I don't think we have ever seen the pre‐school children sit on the same spot for that amount of time!"

The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes, and includes the opportunity for the children to interact with the actors and characters. Children are invited to bring their own favourite stuffed toy...who knows, one of the toys may be given their own starring role in the play!

Food and refreshments will be available in the Tree Top Cafe, and there is plenty of opportunity for you to enjoy your own picnic whilst the kids enjoy the open space in the meadow, either before or after the performance.

There will be two performances on the day, one at 1pm and one at 3pm. Tickets* will be available on the day at a cost of just £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for children (please note that ticket sales will be cash only). Under 2s can watch for free! You will also receive a programme, free of charge, which will contain some fun activities for the children to do whilst in the woods.

Live theatre, beautiful surroundings, and the perfect way to stimulate your children. What better way to start the summer holidays?
