Roald Dahl classic at Williamson PArk

Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox

THIS summer’s Lancaster outdoor theatre season continues later this month when Williamson Park hosts the Roald Dahl classic Fantastic Mr Fox.

The award winning Illyria theatre company is returning to the park with this new show adapted by David Wood.

It brings to life Dahl’s tale of Mr Fox’s attempts to feed his family.

Farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean have an ample supply of chickens, geese and ducks. But they are mean and cruel and they are determined to put a stop to Mr Fox once and for all.

As they rev up their mechanical diggers and load their guns, Mr Fox’s chances are slim at best...or will the sharpest wit win?

The play takes place in The Dell – the park’s natural amphitheatre.

Wooden benches are available for seating but cushions are not provided.
