The Citadel is delighted to announce that they have received funding from Arts Council England to partner with renowned theatre company Horse and Bamboo to present a very special Christmas production of Red Riding Hood at the Citadel Arts Centre this December.

A young girl, a hungry wolf, and a walk through the woods – it sounds like a recipe for disaster, but Red Riding Hood’s not scared… well maybe she’s a little bit scared.

Horse + Bamboo present a gorgeous re-telling of the classic girl-and-the-wolf tale. Exquisite visuals blend with pantomime-style silliness and spooky moments to create an enchanting piece of theatre.  Suitable for ages 4+.

“… A theatrical spell, which is quite unique… And accessible to everyone” The Guardian
