No child forgets the story of the witch, the breadcrumb trail and the gingerbread house. An enchanting experience, this new adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale captures the imagination of children and adults alike. After a sell-out run at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2012, Hansel & Gretel returns with afternoon performances across the first weekend and early May bank holiday, and the spring bank holiday into half term.
