Join the fairytale walkabout adventure


Join Prescot-based theatre and arts organisation, MATE Productions, on a walkabout adventure in their latest magical play, Willow the Wisp and the Fire Sprite.

As a student at Wizard School, you’ll embark on an exciting quest to find ‘the Wisp’ and save the Fire Sprite, Princess Ember. You’ll meet some amazing fairy tale characters along the way; don’t miss seeing tree elves, white witches, gnomes and trolls roaming around Knowsley! The play is set to be a spectacular event, with music, lights, and fire to ‘bewitch’ your mind.

There are two performances in the day – one during daylight and one during twilight to make the experience more magical! Just make sure you dress warm whatever time you go. Performances across Knowsley are:

  • Prescot Woodland Theatre on Saturday 20 October at 3pm and 5.30pm
  • Halewood Triangle Park at Sunday 21 October at 3pm and 5.15pm
  • Court Hey Park, Huyton on Sunday 4 November at 2pm and 4pm

Tickets are £10 for adults, £7.50 for children and £30 for a family ticket (adults x 2 and children x 2)

You can buy your tickets by calling 0844 888 9991
