WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Final battle has come and Camelot has fallen into ruin. But it wasn't always this way. Arthur, the boy who pulled the sword from the stone, would become King of the Britons and the figurehead of a band of knights revered for their bravery and acts of chivalry. As knights and ladies, wizards and sorceresses gather to the fabled round table we will hear stories from a time when myth, magic and mystery were woven into the fate of a kingdom. Discover how Arthur was given his powerful sword, Excalibur, by the Lady of the Lake. Meet Merlin the Wizard, Arthur's trusted teacher and friend. Learn of the love between brave Lancelot and Queen Guinevere and of the battle which would bring an end to the treasured realm of Camelot.
Created by York Theatre Royal who brought you the hugely successful summer shows The Railway Children, The Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan, this fantastical tale is bought to life with jousting, swords and sorcery. The Legend of King Arthur invites you to come and take your place at the Round Table. Expect a magical transformation of the whole theatre building as Camelot is recreated in York for the Summer.
