Hans Christian Andersen's Magical Tales

Magical Tales poster 2008

25th November 2008 - 17th January 2009

Mirror Tent, BMW


The Mirror Tent returned to Oxford as the perfect setting for a brand new script by Lizzie Hopley retelling the classic fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. The mirrors, red and green velvet drapes, gold carvings and ornate pillars all created a glowing Christmassy atmosphere in which to enjoy mulled wine and gourmet crepes around the candle-lit cabaret tables. Directed by Caroline Leslie.
