The Legend of King Arthur
Saturday 9 January 2016
Oddsocks are bringing to life The Legend of King Arthur.
Prepare for magic, music and mirth as the boy who would be king pulls the sword from the stone. Cheer for your favourite jousting knight of the round table, admire the gutsy Lady Guinevere as she reveals her strength and skills, gasp at the magic Merlin as he controls the twists and turns of this classic English legend.
An exciting, interactive and action-packed winter treat for all the family!
