The Nutcracker,  Loughborough Town Hall, Sun 15 Oct

Prepare to enter a magical new world as the Russian Ballet brings its beautiful ballet to town. Based on “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” written by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet will tell the story of Marie, whose godfather Drosselmeier gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic starts – toys come alive and you’ll get the chance to  travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted magical place.
