Easter egg for the holidays

THERE’S plenty to keep kids of all ages entertained over the Easter holidays at Bath’s egg – the dedicated family space at the Theatre Royal.

From Tuesday 18th to Sunday 23rd April, the egg and Bristol’s  Wardrobe Ensemble team up for nine performances of Eloise and the Curse of the Golden Whisk, a swashbuckling adventure served  with lashings of laughs, thrills and scrumptious live music. Set in 1944, in the depths of a bombed-out Bath restaurant, it’s all about what happens when Eloise finds a beautiful golden whisk.

When she clutches the shimmering relic, she unleashes an ancient curse, and the only way to free herself is to cook the tastiest dish in the world!

With time running out, Eloise has to scurry through the city’s underworld, undertaking daring feats as she gathers the ingredients and discovers the recipe. But with a rabble of greedy gangsters also chasing the whisk, will she succeed in evading its curse and cook the delicious dish … and in time ??

Performances are on Tuesday at 7pm, Wednesday and Thursday at 2pm, Friday at 2pm and 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 3pm. The show is suitable for audiences aged seven years and older.
