Gloucester Guildhall Present A Festive Adventure this December, produced by Strike A Light


Christmas 2019

“A magical performance…..lovely to have something so different for grown-ups and children” 

Join us this Christmas for a festive adventure with our magical adaptation of the classic tale of Pinocchio, with live music and puppetry!

A treat for all who are curious, creative and fearless adventurers…..

Pinocchio is a wooden puppet who just wants to be a real boy. On a quest to make this happen, Pinocchio leaves his father’s workshop with his friend Jiminy Cricket and falls into a wild adventure with dodgy foxes, a pleasure island and a whale at the bottom of an ocean.

With an ever growing nose and a scent for adventure will Pinocchio ever become a real boy?

Suitable for ages 7+

Performance running time 90 minutes (inclusive of interval)
