Beowulf: Interactive Family Storytelling with Treehouse Theatre

Join us for the exciting Saxon story of Beowulf, as this famous hero battles the monster known as Grendel, Grendel’s Mother, and finally faces his deadliest foe...the dragon!

"Another fantastic visit. The children were motivated and inspired and had so much fun. The look on their faces was brilliant. They got involved and laughed lots. Thank you... Children were fully engaged for the whole visit – everyone got involved... such a fantastic experience and a great opportunity to see how confidently the children could perform. The children are still talking about it and it has influenced their role play and storytelling"

Audience feedback

We invite you to get involved in this immersive and interactive re-telling – you might choose to act out one of the characters, play the monster or even the dragon, or simply add sound effects.

Sessions take place at 11am and 2pm, and last 45 minutes – advance booking is required. Suitable for ages 4 – 10 years, all children must be accompanied by an adult. The ticket cost is valid for one child plus one accompanying adult.
