Join family and friends for what promises to be the most splendid evening of the summer as you picnic in historic surroundings and lose yourself in one of the best loved fairytales.

Tickets will be available to purchase on the door (subject to availability). 

In an enchanted kingdom in a faraway land, magical creatures and fairy godmothers come together to tell the best loved of all fairytales. Full of song, mirth, and joy for the summer ahead, join us on Cinderella’s journey of a lifetime to a magical ball where nearly anything is possible especially if it is before midnight.

Fun for all the family, this outdoor theatre performance will be taking place in the Lower Deanery Garden of Winchester Cathedral. Refreshments will be available to purchase on the night, including ‘pocket money treats’ (shortbread shapes and other sweet treats), sandwiches and a range of drinks; picnic in historic surroundings and lose yourself in this magical fairytale.

Dressing up is encouraged, so dig out your favourite Princess dress or your Prince Charming best!
