THE Phoenix And The Carpet flies into Welwyn Garden City later this month.

THERE’S a half-term holiday treat for children at Campus West in WGC.

It’s usually cold and miserable during the February school break. Christmas seems an age ago and the summer holiday is just a distant dream.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get away from it all, to visit foreign climes and meet new people?

Well, a new production at the Hawthorne Studio gives you the chance to do just that.

The Phoenix And The Carpet is based on the much-loved classic children’s book by E Nesbit and tells the story of a family of children as they encounter a mysterious and fiery Phoenix and a flying carpet.

Together they embark upon a magical journey around the world, bumping into some extraordinary characters along the way, including an Indian Maharaja, Australian natives Bruce and Charlene and businessman Mr Crinklemuff.

Nuffield Touring Theatre and Forest Forge bring this production to WGC on Wednesday, February 15.

It features beautiful live music, incredible puppets and a wonderfully exciting atmosphere capable of chasing away any half-term blues.

So why not jump aboard the magic carpet and fly far away – at least for just a short time!

The Phoenix And The Carpet is suitable for children aged five and above.

The performance starts at 2.30pm. Tickets cost £8 and are available by calling the ticket hub on 01707 357117 or book online at www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk
