In their 25th anniversary year we welcome back the exceptional touring theatre company Illyria. Recognised as one of the country’s most inventive interpreters of Roald Dahl’s work, Illyria present Danny the Champion of the World.

Danny and his devoted father live in a caravan and operate a petrol station and garage. When Danny turns nine he is devastated to nd out about his father’s secret passion for pheasant- poaching in the estate of the nasty Victor Hazell. One night, Danny awakes to find his father has not returned from a night of poaching.

Fearing that his father may be indanger, Danny sets off to rescue him. Soon, with a little help from the village, Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible and exciting plot ever attempted against Victor Hazell. Magnificent, funny and heartwarming.
