The Dukes outdoor walkabout version of The Hobbit has completely sold out – a fortnight before its run ends.

Tolkien’s fantastical adventure has been entertaining audiences in Williamson Park since it opened on July 5 and is proving one of the Lancaster theatre’s most successful outdoor productions.

The Dukes Artistic Director, Joe Sumsion said: “We are delighted at the response.”
