Celebrating its 20th anniversary in style with a unique festive event, 2Faced Dance Company presents The Box of Delights, an evening of mystery, imagination, dining and performance, at the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford from December 17 to 23.
The Box of Delights is an adaptation of the 1935 classic children’s fantasy tale by John Masefield, Poet Laureate from 1930-67. The show is co-directed by Tamsin Fitzgerald, artistic director of 2FacedDance, and Tim Evans, artistic director of Powerhouse, a Herefordshire company that develops local creative talent, who adapted the book for this production.
Fitzgerald says: “The Box of Delights is a completely new project for us combining performance and dining and I’m absolutely delighted to be in partnership with the amazing team at the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford to make it happen… The show promises to be magical and entertaining, as well as delicious, and will bring together some of the very best culture and cuisine that our wonderful county has to offer.”
The audience will begin their journey at a secret location where they will be met by members of 2Faced Dance and led to the nearby Green Dragon Hotel where a delicious three-course feast, created by executive chef Simon Bolsover and his team, will be waiting for them. Throughout the evening 2Faced Dance will present highly skilled dance, circus and theatre around the diners, weaving a tale of mystery and imagination. To book tickets, go to box-of-delights.com.
