On Friday 20 February at 1pm Lyngo Theatre present Puss in Boots. Would you trust a talking cat? You never know, he could turn you from a pauper to a prince. With smoke and mirrors and hidden trapdoors this sure-footed feline fools both the King and the Ogre to put his master at the top.

Patrick Lynch from Cbeebies brings this classic furry tail to life with a host of puppets, a working windmill and an avalanche of fruit and nuts. It’s the cat’s whiskers! Puss in Boots is suitable for ages 4+, tickets £8.

If our fest of treats on offer over half term isn’t enough to satisfy children’s imaginative taste buds on Saturday 28 February Whalley Range All Stars presents a tale of valour and bravery, Cake.
