FOLKSY Theatre are set to perform their musical adaptation of Jonathan Emmett's "The Princess and the Pig" at Bishops Wood Centre, near Stourport.

There has been a dreadful mix up in the royal nursery - Priscilla the Princess has switched places with Pigmella, the farmer's new piglet.

The kindly farmer and his wife believe it's the work of a good witch. The ill-tempered King and Queen squarely blame a bad witch. It's the sort of thing that happens all the time in fairytales.

The performance will take place on the "dome home" stage in front of the meadow campsite at Bishops Wood Centre. Residents are invited to bring along their picnics, blankets and folding chairs to enjoy the open air production - filled with music and puppetry.

John Rhymer, secretary to Friends of Bishops Wood, said: "Folksy Theatre have been visiting Bishops Wood to perform both Shakespeare plays and their own adaptations of popular children's books for several years and their performances are always lively, engaging and full of humour.

"Our audiences have always loved these performances."

"The Princess and the Pig" will be performed on Tuesday (August 15). Gates open at 5pm, with the performance kicking off at 6pm.

Discounted tickets are available to pre-book, by calling Bishops Wood Centre on 01299 250513 or visiting

Tickets on the night will cost £15 for adults, £12 concessions and £10 children.
