'Hansel & Gretel'
Cscape Dance Company
Hansel & Gretel are in the depths of magical woodland but desperate to find their way home. From stones to crumbs, can they follow their trail or will they be side-tracked by the allure of that sticky, sweet home in the woods?
And what about the little old lady within?
She seems positively lovely…
This Summer, Cscape Dance Company turn the twisting pathways at The Lost Gardens of Heligan into an evening of story-telling, dance, music, design and installation.
Join them on a journey through the gardens on this evocative, surprising and memorable experience for all the family.
Prepare for darkness, light, magic and wonder… and maybe even a few ‘sweeties’ along the way!
Cscape are Cornwall’s leading outdoor, promenade dance company, creating performances for all the family.
This will be a magical, exciting, dark, beautiful, warm, funny and highly engaging show. It’s also the very first dance performance in The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Don’t miss out! All ages welcome!
Before your journey begins !
A delicious feast will be available in Heligan’s new outdoor eatery from 5.00pm, all of it delectable street food, the perfect start to a spectacular night.
Specially created Heligan cocktails, cold beer and other cool refreshments are also available to make sure you won’t go thirsty as you follow Hansel and Gretel though The Lost Gardens.
As you will be adventuring around the Gardens, we recommend comfortable footwear - and wellies if it’s been a rainy day – come prepared for the weather. The route is completely accessible and should be no problem for Wheelchair users and rugged buggys.
The site for the main part, is fully accessible. But, there are one or two small areas where access is more restricted. This should not affect any individuals experience of the event.
Whilst this is a true adventure, through and around the magical Gardens, there will be moments where you can sit back and relax as the story unfolds in front of you - hay bales, cushions and chairs will be available.
“Sometimes the forces of Kernow – its beauty, talent and that certain magical quality – conspire to create something quite wonderful.” Lee Trewhela on Neptunalia
