Performance in the park

A CLASSIC fairytale will be brought to life with a magical mix of song, dance, juggling and acrobatics during a performance at a popular country park.

Swiss theatre company Nicole et Martin will present their version of Brothers Grimm story The Musicians of Bremen at Hardwick Park, near Sedgefield, this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Performed in a specially-built white canvas tent, the show combines traditional story-telling with a visual performance.

Hardwick Park manager, Sara Fortune, said: “Their shows are equally popular with children and adults and I’m sure the park will provide the perfect picturesque setting for their marquee and accompanying circus entourage.”

Part of Brass: Durham International Festival 2012, which is organised by Durham County Council, performances take place at 7pm on Friday and Saturday and at 2pm on Sunday.
