After winning the 2016 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People with its outdoor walkabout version of The Hobbit, The Dukes has chosen a new adaptation of Treasure Island for its 30th anniversary of promenading in Lancaster’s Williamson Park from July 4-August 12.

And before the summer, The Dukes welcomes more shows specifically for families; Heaven Eyes, a poetic and gritty story about three youngsters who run away from their children’s home and sail down the River Tyne on a makeshift raft; Chester Tuffnut, a treemole who loves adventure and wants to spread fun and happiness among his woodland friends, told with puppets and music; Northern Ballet return with Goldilocks and The Three Bears and another well-loved fairytale, Tom Thumb will be performed with puppetry and visual theatre.
