All the fun of the carnival at theatre

A new theatre production for the under sevens and their families will visit Alnwick Playhouse today as part of its family programme Creative Cocoon.

Hey, Presto! is a theatre adaptation of the picture book by author-illustrator Nadia Shireen. Produced by New Writing North for Durham Book Festival, the carnival-themed production promises to bring all the fun of the fair to Alnwick.

The story follows best friends, Presto and Monty. Monty is great at singing, eating ice cream and pulling funny faces, while Presto is a brilliant magician. When the carnival comes to town, Presto and Monty decide to join up.

It can be seen at 1pm and 4pm. Book on 01665 510785.
