The first of the family shows at our season of theatre outdoors in the fabulous setting of Abergavenny Castle. This is as much fun for the adults as the kids it's designed for!
Illyria bring to life this tale from the Arabian Nights, Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves, with their usual brilliant staging and skilful effects it's packed with cliff-hangers, larger-than-life characters, laughs galore, and the most magical cave you’ve ever seen!

Young Ali Baba stumbles across an enchanted cave when he overhears the magic words that open it: “Open Sesame!”. Inside the cave he finds untold amounts of gold and jewels, and takes some of it home to show his wife. But what will he do when she chides him for stealing? Can he keep the secret from his jealous brother? And when the Robber King comes looking for the missing treasure supported by an army of 40 angry thieves – will he and his family survive?

Don't miss this fantastic show! Perfect summer fun for thieves and vagabonds aged 5+.
