The Civic


What if you were made of wood? What adventures wood you have?!

Join us this Christmas for a fresh take on the classic Pinocchio story. Three very funny men seek refuge in a grand but abandoned old house where they gather around an extraordinary dining table that becomes their playground. Grandfather, Father and Son tell tales of growing up and it turns out one of them used to be Pinocchio – he’s had quite a life!

Created by Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company who bring their hallmark hilarity, puppetry, and extraordinary physical tricks to the show; you may have joined us for their take on Goldilocks and the Three Bears at The Civic in 2015.

We want to welcome as many of you back this Christmas so have put in place a More The Merrier offer, you will get £2 off your adult ticket with every child ticket bought. The offer is automatic at checkout so you don’t need to put in a code. 

Suitable for children aged 3+ and enjoyed by all the family.
