Fantastic Mr Fox

This slick musical delivers family fun at its finest, with funky modern costumes and impressive songs - so it is sure to be a fun filled Easter show recognising and celebrating the power of friendship.

This brilliantly witty tale of the clever Mr Fox outsmarting three greedy farmers is brought to life on stage with live music and songs. Accompanied by a barbershop quartet and band, our light footed hero must overcome all kinds of obstacles to save his furry friends.

As the farmers approach from above ground, can Mr Fox hatch a plan with his band of friends and dig everyone out?

Putting all his agility, cunning and stealth to the test, and his friendships too, can he still outfox the farmers?

Marking the centenary year of the world’s number one storyteller, this family show is a playful retelling of Dahl’s much loved book.

With his stories available in 58 languages and having sold more than 250 million books, Dahl’s stories are known the world over with many having been adapted for the stage and screen.

Tickets for Fantastic Mr Fox start at £12 and are available online at or call the box office on 01865 305305. The show is on from Tuesday, April 11, through to Saturday, April 15 and is suitable for children aged five plus.
