Fairytale fever is sweeping Lancaster courtesy of the city’s Dukes theatre.

To coincide with the summer run of Hansel & Gretel And More Tales From The Forest in Williamson Park, The Dukes has also organised a series of free readings and craft workshops for children in the city centre.

The story of Hansel & Gretel will be read in Lancaster Library tomorrow, July 12, at 11.30am followed by a drop-in craft session with a gingerbread house theme from 12.30-2pm.

Similar activities will take place at Waterstones in King Street on July 26 from 1pm.
