After gracing the stage at Welwyn Garden City’s Hawthorne Theatre, audiences have the opportunity to catch one of Tchaikovsky’s world famous classical ballets in Potters Bar.

The Vienna Festival Ballet company returns to the Wyllyotts Centre, off Darkes Lane, on Sunday, November 30 with two performances of The Nutcracker, at 2pm and 5pm.

The enchanting tale of The Nutcracker follows Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier.

Their adventures see them combat the Mouse King and join the Sugar Plum Fairy on a wonderful trip to a kingdom made entirely of sweets.
