29 July - 29 August

This classic story will take over St Paul’s Church and Grounds from the 29th July – 29th August

In the summer of 2015 you are invited to join a head-strong little puppet as he runs away for fun and adventure.

Keen to prove he is as quick and clever as any real little boy, he leaves his Pappa far behind. On his fantastical journey Pinocchio will meet a speaking cat, a dancing fox, a sneaky snake and a child who turns into a donkey; but as he’s swallowed up whole by a ship-guzzling dogfish it looks like Pinocchio will never become a real little boy…

Carlo Collodi’s fantastical version of 19th Century Tuscany is full to the brim with travelling carnivals, talking animals, fairies and foolish puppets.

Our newly commissioned version will be created by Dan Winder and Candida Calidcot, the same team who brought you the celebrated and award nominated Alice in Wonderland and Alice through the Looking Glass over the last two summers. Packed full of fantastic songs and wonderful characters, this is set to be a feast for all the family.


This show is a promenade production that will take you through the grounds of St Paul’s Church. Seating is unallocated.

Matinee performances start at 2.30pm on July 30th and August 6th, 8th, 13th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th and 29th.
