Join us for magic, music and mischief in this new familyfriendly show with an exciting blend of live music, puppetry and storytelling with themes of history, magic and science. 

In 1595, Dr John Dee, alchemist, astronomer and magician, relocates to draughty Manchester College. While he is immersed in study, his daughter Katherine reads about his abandoned quest to discover the Philosopher’s Stone, the Elixir of Life...

The show is brought to you by outstanding recorder consort Palisander and Rust & Stardust, famed for their handmade puppets and passion for storytelling, and is guaranteed to be lots of fun! 

Duration: 1 hour approx.
