DUE to popular demand, The Dukes’ 25th anniversary season of walkabout shows in Williamson Park is to be extended.

Merlin and the Legend of King Arthur has proved so popular with audiences and critics alike that it will run for an extra week, closing on August 20.

Since it opened on July 8, this epic story of medieval magic and myth has cast its spell over audiences and received 4-star reviews from The Guardian and The Times.

And now even more people will have the chance to experience the drama set in the Dark Ages when England is in turmoil, battles rage and evil lurks behind every corner.

Tales of enchantment, terrifying quests, a beautiful sorceress and a fearsome dragon mix fantasy and reality in what has become the UK’s largest outdoor walkabout theatre event.
