Reynard The Fox presented by The Fabularium

Please note that the start time for this show has changed to 4pm as opposed to the 7pm as detailed in our what's on brochures.

Reynard: rascal, rapscallion, rogue. The woodlands most infamous scoundrel prides himself on being the trickiest trickster of the forest. But when the Woodland Court announces the theft of the King's Crown Jewels the animal kingdom immediately blames Reynard the Fox. Now, the wily Reynard must do everything he can to prove his innocence and avoid certain death, all the while maintaining his cool, suave persona.

But is he too silver-tongued for his own good? Is the fox out-foxed? Or will his quick wits save his tail? Will he live to make mischief another day?

An utterly beguiling, cheerfully anarchic show weaving together very funny storytelling, delightful puppetry and terrific original live music. Family fun at its finest
