ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES @ Lowther Castle
Jewels, gold, thieves, caves, magic words and a robber king – Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves is a tale of high Arabian drama, adapted from the ancient classic Arabian Nights.
Many will know the stunning Disney adaptation of this desert tale. Now Illyria – who brought The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle to Lowther in 2018 – is bringing their highly popular theatrical version of the story to the castle and gardens. Last year’s event was a great success and charmed all viewers, adult and young alike.
This year’s once again will be a lovely occasion for families. Bring chairs and rugs and, of course do not forget your children. The event is a fund-raiser for the wonderful Calvert Trust, a charity that organises outdoor adventure holidays for disabled adults and children.
