Part of the Salisbury International Arts Festival.
Following last year’s sell-out performance of Danny the Champion of the World, Festival favourites Illyria present Hans Christian Andersen’s much-loved story, The Emperor’s New Clothes, and will be performed in the garden of The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum, Salisbury.
Two swindlers spin a yarn, the Emperor allows himself to be taken in, and it isn’t long before everyone is stitched up. Only at the Grand Parade on April Fools’ Day is the barefaced cheek of it all revealed.
Picnics are welcome so please bring a rug or your own low-backed seating. The performance goes ahead whatever the weather. Special entry rates apply to The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum for ticket holders during the Festival.
Suitable for ages 5+
Tickets: can be booked at https://www.salisburyfestival.co.uk/detail.php?id=488 or by calling 0845 241 9651 (please do not contact the museum).
