In a faraway land, a hard-working and lonely carpenter wishes for his puppet Pinocchio to come to life. By the magic of a wishing well his dream comes true! Pinocchio is playful and mischievous and must prove himself worthy of becoming a real boy. Join Pinocchio on his adventure as he discovers that where there is love and honesty, there is always magic.

An original retelling of the classic children's story, Pinocchio is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre.

With sell-out performances and a string of hugely successful CBeebies TV adaptations, Northern Ballet’s productions for children are not to be missed.

This child friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.
