Set in the field behind Challengers (a children’s disability charity) at Burchatt’s Farm in Stoke Farm, the Spiegeltent holds 200 people, is fully heated and accessible to all.

THE LEGEND OF KING ARTHUR tells the famous story of the ‘once and future king’, Arthur Pendragon. From his
humble beginnings as a knight’s squire, who pulls ‘the sword in the stone’, to his destiny as King of the Britons.
However, as Arthur gathers his Knights of the Round Table to uphold the code of chivalry, a terrible threat surfaces in the shape of the White Dragon, unleashed by an unexpected adversary.

This rollicking family adventure contains all the legendary aspects of Arthur including Camelot, Excalibur, the Lady in the Lake and of course the all-powerful wizard Merlin, guiding Arthur towards his destiny.

Written and directed by CAROLINE DEVLIN (Macbeth, King Lear, Henry V), the production will once again feature
five actors who will transport audiences to a world of medieval magic.

For the event, GSC are very excited to be bringing back the fabulous Spiegeltent from Belgium, which so enchanted
audiences last year. The 80-yr old mirrored dance hall was an instant hit with everyone who stepped inside the
TARDIS-like venue: “Something a little different is clearly about to take place inside this strange structure. Red linen seats; mirrored walls; roll up, roll up atmosphere envelops…” Surrey Life Magazine, 2016
