The Children’s Touring Partnership presents the Bristol Old Vic production of Swallows and Amazons.

A new musical by Helen Edmundson and Neil Hannon and based on the book by Arthur Ransome.

An action-packed musical adventure for the whole family, Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.
