Follow in the footsteps of 12-year old Meggie as she ventures behind the scenes of the theatre, taking you on a journey through unseen spaces, and telling her enchanting story along the way.

The backstage tour will end on the main stage where Inkheart author Cornelia Funke will read a chapter from her fantasy novel. For those wanting to take home a piece of the magic, Inkheart books will be on sale from our Bookshop (next to Box Office) and Cornelia will sign the pages – before they come to life.

All children should be accompanied by an adult though due to capacity reasons, we kindly ask that no more than one adult accompanies each child.
