A MUSICAL tale for children comes to The Castle Theatre in Wellingborough this weekend.

Garlic Theatre presents Fiddlesticks, puppet theatre for children aged four and over, on Saturday at 11am and 2pm.

Fiddlesticks is the playful spirit of a violin who breaks free from his strings and leads audiences into a world of musical fantasy in search of the beautiful Violinka.

On his magical journey, puppets made from old instruments spring to life: birds fly out from music scores, a horse emerges from the bow of a violin...

Garlic Theatre conjures a spellbinding tale of rhythmical twists and turns with a lively blend of clowning, rod and shadow puppets, percussion and live music.

Tickets for Fiddlesticks are priced £8.50 (£6.50) with Family Tickets costing £25 for four people. Tickets can be purchase by calling the Box Office on 01933 270 007 or online at www.thecastle.org.uk.
