Princess Charming

We don't like being told what to do. 
Some boys like pink. Some girls like football. Whatever. 
We’re here to sing, shout, stamp, dance, dress up. And be ourselves.

  • Wheelchair Access
  • Tue 24 Oct – Sat 28 Oct, 2:30pm


Running time: 1 hour

Venue: Upstairs

Please note that, regrettably, the upstairs theatre is not currently accessible for wheelchair users.
