A wondrous world, a different perspective.

This show has been postponed - new dates to be announced.
We are currently closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic - read our full announcement. 

This perfect family Easter show is an adventure-filled modern adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece.

Lemuel Gulliver sails away to a world of strange islands and even stranger creatures – from the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput, to the giants of Brobdingnag, and the mysterious Houyhnhnms - and embarks upon an epic adventure of survival, unexpected friendship and self-discovery.

Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video camera, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive show that uses Swift’s biting satire to explore reality and escapism, home and family, and the power of stories to transform our view of the world.

Please note this show contains flashing light throughout.
