Tim Bray Theatre Company presents:

The Magic Faraway Tree

by Enid Blyton
Adapted by Tim Bray
Songs by Christine White

Created for Ages: 5-10
⏱ Show Run Time: 60min

Book For Education Week Here

Don’t miss this fabulous, fantastical story by one of the world’s best-selling authors, Enid Blyton, adapted for the stage by Tim Bray.

Jo, Bessie, and Annie move to the country and discover a ginormous tree in the midst of an enchanted wood. Things get really strange when they climb it and discover magical people living there, like Silky, Moon-Face, and the Saucepan Man.

At the very top, a ladder leads them to magical lands which are sometimes nice (like the Land of Birthdays and the Land of Take-What-You-Want), but sometimes not-so-nice (like the Land of Tempers and the Land of Dame Slap). Along the way, the children have some thrilling adventures! Based on four books in The Enchanted Wood series, this wonderful show will enchant you from the first minute to the last.

Costume Parade

Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Magic Faraway Tree characters. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance.
