In the lands where the midnight sun shimmers and the northern lights glow, a baby boy is stolen by an eagle with hungry chicks to feed. Meanwhile, in the darkest depths of the ocean live three terrifying (and stinking) Sea Trolls. When the trolls emerge from the sea to kidnap the king, the three (rather chatty) princesses must await their seaweed covered fate. Will the glittering swords in the forest ever be found? Will the princesses ever stop talking? Will the whole world end up underwater? This half-term, Shakespeare’s Globe is embracing the rainy season and exploring stories about water, rivers and storms, with magical storytelling sessions and playful workshops for all the family to enjoy.
