Blu & The Magic Web
A new fairytale adventure
Once upon a time, there was a village
A village hidden by a wood covered with cobwebs
A village where all of the children have disappeared -
All, that is, except Blu ...
A brand new production for 2021 created by the team behind Brighton’s A Christmas Carol at The Spire.
Join Blu, as together we adventure through the tangled woods for a new spin on old tales. Along the way, you will bump into characters from some of the world’s best loved stories reimagined for the next generation.
Blu & the Magic Web is a fairytale mash-up featuring Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel and some brand new characters to add to your storybooks.
