Treasure Island, Haymarket Theatre, Leicester Thurs 13th Dec – Sun 6 Jan

Penned by national treasure and established author Sandi Toksvig (The Great British Bake Off) you can expect  her serious sharp wit in this production. On the hunt for treasure, Jim Hawkins encounters deadly storms and even deadlier pirates, led by the infamous Long John Silver. There will be daring sword fights, piratical parrots and acrobatic puppets, this new adaptation is wonderfully imaginative and will leave you spellbound.
