Dates and times

Show Map

Kirkstall Abbey

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

Family Theatre Show: Free chocolate egg for every child!

Join Peter Rabbit, Rapunzel, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Alice and their friends as they guide you through a magical Easter egg trail.

Follow the story through Fairyland - along the way you’ll join in with singing, dancing and fun games led by your favourite characters from iconic children’s stories.

Meet Rapping Rapunzel, join adventurous Peter Pan in a sword sparring session and discover what cheeky Pinocchio gets up to when the shop closes....no wonder Alice is in such a fluster!

Children are encouraged to explore Fairytale-land and find all their favourite characters - each performance will last for a full hour and a half, including an opportunity to meet Peter Rabbit and take pictures as he hands every child a free Chocolate Easter Egg.

Expect an enchanting family experience, which will create magical memories for young and old.

Tickets for Eggs & Tales will make an ideal Easter gift offering the perfect day out for parents, grandparents and children of all ages.

9.30-11.00am | 11.30am-1.00pm | 2.00-3.30pm
