The Made in Northampton 2014 season comes to a close with a festive, family show this Christmas.

Merlin brings the legend of King Arthur and Camelot to the Royal & Derngate in Northampton later this month and the show will run right through the Christmas period.

In Ella Hickson’s new take on the story, three childhood friends embark on an action-packed adventure.

Prince Arthur turns 16 and becomes a knight but finds he is torn between his duty and his friends.

Meanwhile his squire Merlin is struggling to keep his magic powers under control and Princess Gwen shows she might be the bravest of them all. The show features villains and talking trees along with plenty of humour and music

Will Merrick, best known as Alo Creevey in E4 TV series Skins, takes the title role of the young Merlin.

Merlin can be seen at Royal & Derngate, Northampton, from Wednesday, November 26, 2014 to Sunday, January 4, 2015.
