Inspired by her father’s heroic exploits and tales of renowned legends like Robin Hood and Sir Lancelot, Will understands the art of defying baddies! But nothing can prepare her for the unexpected twist, when Baron Boris’s daughter, Edel, falls head over heels in love with her and yearns to be rescued as well. Armed with nothing but pots and pans for armour and a humble farm donkey as her steed, can Will save Edel, and conquer the mean and nasty Baron?

Set to capture the hearts of youngsters and adults alike, Will Tell and the Big Bad Baron at The Lowry is recommended for children aged 3 years and older. Don’t miss out on this fantastic production!
