King ArthurThe Last BaguetteThis event has now finished
A fun and farcical family adventure with knights, wizards, mist, magic and an amplified lute!
Somewhere in England, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not. A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist, and magic.
This fun and farcical adventure is a deliberately anarchic and anachronistic re-telling of the Arthurian Legend with live music, physical comedy and lo-fi acrobatics.
The Last Baguette make entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and are resident artists at Pound Arts, Corsham. The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools.
Suitable for ages 5+
Ice Creams available to purchase
“The energy and commitment of the company is infectious...this is unique small scale theatre with a great heart”Theatre Bath on The Little Match Girl
Additional Information about Open-Air Events after 19 July
You'll be seated on the grass, so please bring low-backed camping chairs, rugs and cushions to sit on. This open-air performance is designed to take place even in inclement weather and so we recommend that audiences come prepared for all eventualities of a British Summer and bring a torch for evening events! No umbrellas, and assistance dogs only please.
Following the Prime Minister’s confirmation that social distancing measures will no longer apply to performances after the 19 July, we are increasing the number of tickets available for this performance. However, we will continue to implement certain guidelines for best practice to ensure the safety of our volunteers and audiences at events this summer. Our community venues will continue to provide hand sanitiser stations and encourage audience members to wear a face covering when visiting indoor spaces such as the toilets/bar etc. You can view our current guidance here.
Artsreach will monitor its guidance in accordance with any future government advice and publish updated information as required.
