The Canterbury Tales

Thursday 23 October 2014 to Saturday 8 November 2014

Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales are a flagon-filled feast of fun, brimful with chivalric romance, beautiful maidens, swindling merchants, bawdy wives, flatulent monks, and posing the Wife of Bath's timeless question: 'What is it that women most desire?'. Live music, puppetry and enchanting story-telling combine in brand new stage production devised and written by the company, where every night the audience will decide the outcome! Tickets start from just £12. See website for full details and events programme.

October half term family fun at Wisley

Saturday 25 October 2014 to Sunday 2 November 2014

Join us for a week of repulsive plants and frightening food! Because plants can't get up and run away from their predators they have evolved an extraordinary array of defensive mechanisms against insects and animals. Learn all about caterpillar spit as you plant seeds, carve a pumpkin, design a spider cupcake, climb a tall tree, hear tall stories and make a pumpkin hat. Activities vary daily, see website for details as some activities require booking.
