Trestle is thrilled that Horse + Bamboo Theatre will be returning to Trestle this Christmas for the third consecutive year with another enchanting production; a beautiful rendition of the well known fairytale Hansel and Gretel. The show will include masks, puppets, music and story-telling which is at the heart of Horse + Bamboo’s theatre. Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit said of the company, “I adore Horse and Bamboo. Simply, they make beautiful, stunning and utterly engaging theatre. I cannot speak too highly about the quality and originality of their shows. A must see company”
There will be two performances of the show on Sunday 28 December and early booking is advised after tickets quickly sold out for I Believe In Unicorns this month.
