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.

Activities vary daily, see website for details as some activities require booking.
