Outdoor Theatre, The Reluctant Dragon

Saturday 7th July, show starts at 6pm

You’ve got to fight him some time or other you know, ’cos he’s St George and you’re the dragon…”

When a dragon is discovered up on the Downs, the Boy is not in the least surprised. He’s always known the cave there was a dragon cave, so it seems only right for a dragon to be living in it.  But this particular dragon is not a bit like the ones in fairy tales – this one writes poetry and doesn’t like fighting!

When the town-folk send for St. George to slay the dragon, the boy needs to come up with a clever plan to save his friend and convince the townsfolk to accept him….

Quantum Theatre presents an enchanting adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s, The Reluctant Dragon – a touching, sweet and funny tale of bravery, friendship and derring-do for all the family.

Ticket prices, adult £11, child £6, family (2A+2C) £30.

Special offer for the outdoor theatre evening: Wood fired pizza with salad £10 (adults), children eat free!  (Served from The Courtyard but can also be taken to enjoy whilst you watch the show!)  Add a Prosecco or Peroni for £4.50.  Free juice for children.

New for 2018 – Every Saturday from 3pm in July and August Holker will be having a ‘Pop-up Pub and Pizza in The Courtyard’ – good food, great ales and family fun (free entry).
