This Weekend

FRI 11 - SUN 13 OCT

Northern Ballet’s Dracula, The Marlowe Theatre, Weds 9 – Sat 12 Oct

Step into the world of Dracula – if you dare. Seducing countless generations, Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire lives on in this extraordinary ballet. The dark tale of the immortal Count is played out through Northern Ballet’s blend of sensuous dancing and gripping theatre enhanced by gothic sets and costumes. If you think you know what to expect from ballet, think again. This is ballet with a dramatic bite that will leave you thirsty for more – don’t miss your chance to experience it.

Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival, Fri 11 – Sun 13 Oct

A buzzing, three-day community arts event full of creativity and participation, taking place at Trinity Theatre and other venues across Tunbridge Wells. Proving that puppetry is far from just Punch & Judy, this festival celebrates the art in all its many forms – object theatre, marionettes, shadow play, kites – from a 17ft Arbor to a mini marvel of a table top show for an audience of eight, the packed programme has something for everyone, including lots of ticketed and free shows that are perfect for families. Spanish theatre company Cal y Canto and their breathtaking A-TA-KA! show will officially launch the festival on Fri 11 Oct at Trinity Theatre Gardens where everyone is invited to a free, magically surreal outdoor show on the theme of ‘air’ – a musical spectacle of kites, torches and flying creatures that will transform and light up the sky. For the full line-up of events, head to:
