Our NEW exciting family friendly show for 2023!

Live on stage… ‘Fright Delight’. A brand new show for children and their families, written especially for Pumpkin Fest 2023!

Join us for an action-packed, fun-filled Halloween adventure that will leave the whole family with smiles on their faces, laughter in their bellies and spirits that are ready to delight in all the spooky mischief of Samhain night. 

Robin needs your help. Every year, their mischievous great great great great great great granny Harriett pays the family a visit. Unlike all the other ghosts, fairies, pixies and dwellers of other realms, Harriett, who lived a long long long long time ago, does not want to leave.  

With a knack for jumping out of dark corners, playing tricks and giving everyone a good scare, you’d better be on your toes, as you never know what’s coming next when granny Harriett is around. 

Can you help Robin find a way to frighten Harriett so that she will go home, or will her witchy tricks turn out to be the trickiest treat of all? 

Get ready for an uproarious Halloween experience like no other. Filled with laughs and frights, this fun-packed show truly is a Halloween Fright Delight.
