The Turner sisters, of Turn Around Dance Theatre, have secured funding for their free show which explores the true meaning of friendship.

The Thief, the Fox and the Phoenix, takes audiences on an adventure between a wallowing wanderer, a fox and a phoenix.

The 30 minute outdoor performances are set within an enchanted forest. Performed and choreographed by sisters Ellen, Grace and Lily, the show features dance, story telling and aerial circus. It also includes live music written by composer Lee Affen.
