There’s another magical adventure weaving its way to The Dukes as our Round theatre transforms into the enchanting world of Sleeping Beauty – a brand new, socially distanced production!

Written and directed by Sarah Punshon and Daniel Bye, Sleeping Beauty is an inventive and exciting show full of storytelling, music, joy and love that promises to warm the heart.
