The Dukes, Lancaster is delighted to be welcoming back the Northern Ballet next month with one of their short ballets for small people – Tortoise & The Hare.

The dancers will bring the classic story of the tortoise and the hare to life during three shows on Saturday, April 9 at 2pm, 4pm and a 6pm.

Tortoise & The Hare is a re-imagining of Aesop’s much-loved fable of a tortoise who, tired of being teased for his slowness, challenges a speedy hare to a race.

Lasting approximately 40 minutes, the ballet is created especially for children aged three plus and young families to experience and enjoy live dance, music and theatre.

Tickets are £6 and £5 concessions and there are also themed craft workshops with a packed lunch from noon-1.30pm on April 9 - £5 per child. Adults accompanying children with workshop tickets receive 10% off cafe prices.
