It’s quite hard to imagine what Black Beauty might be like on stage but The Guardian gave this production by Red Bridge a glowing 5 stars and called it a ‘rollicking adaptation’ so it looks well worth checking out. Created by Andy Manley, Andy Cannon and Shona Reppe, the show blends storytelling, music and puppetry and is suitable for children aged six and over and their adults.

Black Beauty is at Adam Smith on Saturday 28 January and 2.30pm. Tickets are £10.00 with concessions £8.00 and family tickets £32.
