About the event

If you join Heartbreak in the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise! 

It’s Grimm Night and the forest spirits are wandering abroad. Never heard of the Grimm? It used to live in the Black Forest, but now travels through forests across the UK looking for children’s voices to steal. To prevent this spectre from taking our voices, we must tell it stories, so we gather together to re-tell the stories from whence it took its name - the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm.

We can’t just keep telling the same stories in the same way for hundreds of years, though. That would be very boring, and not very much like Heartbreak at all. 

So… What if Rapunzel escaped her tower? Or Snow White didn’t wake up? Join us for an evening of enchanting storytelling full of magic, puppetry, and music, as we enter into the fantastical world of the Brothers Grimm with altered endings and a modern twist. 

Pack the picnic basket, dress for the weather and don’t forget to bring something to sit on as Heartbreak Productions invites you to Wonder With Grimm.

Children must be accompanied by an adult with a ticket. The production is recommended for children aged 6+
