The Hobbit

5 July 2016 - 13 August 2016


hobbit comes to LancasterSince 1987 more than 1/2 a million people have shared some magical experiences watching outdoor theatre in Williamson Park, Lancaster. This year, Tolkien's fantastical adventure celebrates its 80th anniversary and will be performed outdoors here in Lancaster.

As in previous years the audience will move to different locations in the park as they follow the action. Some of those walks have been amazing experiences as characters from the story move about in amongst the trees and shrubbery and the audience is immersed in the story.

Bilbo, the dwarves and Gandalf will take the audience on one such journey this year, through the woods and along pathways that become enchanted forests and misty mountains full of wonderful and strange creatures.

If past performances are a guide then this will be a truly memorable experience for all the family.
