CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Hansel & Gretel

Date:

Fri 13 Jul 2018 9:45 pm

Venue:

Lichfield Guildhall
Event Code: 13H
Price: £12

Enter a world of light and shadow, of darkness and deception, a helter-skelter journey into ghostly landscapes and feasts of sugar.… The words of Simon Armitage retell the famous story in an extended lyrical poem entwined with chamber music by composer Matthew Kaner, one of the most original voices of his generation. With shadowplay and puppetry by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, Hansel and Gretel presents an evocative collection of art-forms, drawing audiences into a uneasy yet curiously familiar landscape.

The second part of our Friday the 13th doublebill!

Recommended for ages 12+

Running Time:  60 mins (approx.)

This event is repeated on Saturday 14th at 11am (14A) in the Lichfield Garrick Studio.

Hansel and Gretel is supported by: PRS Foundation, Foyle Foundation, Radcliffe Trust, RVW Trust, Double O Foundation, Leche Trust, Colwinston Trust, John S Cohen Foundation
