All aboard! This summer’s show at York Theatre Royal is this much-loved tale about the water-borne antics of the Walker and Blackett children’s school holiday in the Lake District as they set sail for adventure. The Swallows – John, Susan, Titty and Roger – sail to Wildcat Island and meet Nancy and Peggy, the self-proclaimed Amazon Pirates, and the dastardly Captain Flint. It’s a classic, action-packed and wholesome adventure that should appeal to the whole family. The production feaatures music from The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon, too, which is another reason to go.
Other Swallows & Amazons events include a Swallows vs Amazons Challenge every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 1 to 2pm in the Studio from 31 July for 7 to 11 year-olds. Are you a Swallow? Or an Amazon? Pick your tribe and pit your wits, skills and creativity against each other in a drama challenge. There will be dressing up, theatre games and a chance to learn more about the Swallows & Amazons story.
