Snap The Dragon


Every year in the small town of Pockthorpe there is a big street party to celebrate the new mayor. The townsfolk put on their best clothes, bake cakes and watch their favourite story performed in the market square by the finest actors. The story is about a brave knight who rescues a princess from a fire-breathing dragon. There’s colourful costumes, dancing, singing and even a giant dragon puppet. It’s quite a spectacle!

This year however, was not the same as other years. until now the story of the dragon had been just that, a story, a folk tale. Nobody ever thought that dragons might actually be, well, real.

Join us on this heart-warming, comical quest as the townsfolk of Pockthorpe learn the valuable lessons of how never to judge a dragon by the ‘snap’ of it’s jaws!
