Marauders! Treachery! Mutiny! This means war!

All aboard The Swallow! Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies.

A new musical for the whole family written especially for Bristol Old Vic, Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.

From Bristol Old Vic's Artistic Director and Director of the West End and international hit War Horse, the writer of the National Theatre's astonishing Coram Boy and with music by Neil Hannon (aka The Divine Comedy), this is a show not to be missed. Capturing the imaginations of young and old, this is a Christmas treat that will never be forgotton - even by duffers.

A night to remember

Are you a seafaring Swallow or an adventurous Amazon? Have you got what it takes to captain your own ship?

For £200 you and three crew mates can climb aboard your very own houseboat and experience the adventure for yourselves! You'll get the most exciting view in the house, a noble voyager's picnic and complementary grog, programmes and ice creams as you sail the intrepid seas from your unique look out. A perfect way to enjoy the show.

Book our box for your family and friends and raise your flagons to make this a night to remember! Call the box office on 0117 987 7877 for more information. Ay ay Cap'n!!
