Black Beauty

Saddle up, jump on and gallop headlong into a story where loneliness gives way to hope, friends become heroes, and courage saves the day.

The McCuddy brothers are out of work this Christmas; there’s not much call for pantomime horses this year … everyone wants a cow!

From the cosy horsebox they call home the brothers take the bit firmly between their teeth and tell the classic tale of Black Beauty as you’ve never seen it before. Expect fabulous storytelling, puppetry and gentle comedy — laced with that memorable theme tune — in this unique and heart-warming festive treat.

Black Beauty runs from Saturday 9 December to Sunday 31 December in Lakeside’s Djanogly Theatre, lasts one hour and 30 minutes (including interval), and is suitable for ages 6+.
