In the grounds of an imposing manor house, in the heart of the Yorkshire Moors, there’s a door that once led to a magical garden, a door that’s been locked for many years, the key buried and all but forgotten.
When ten year old Mary Lennox is suddenly orphaned she must make the journey from sun-baked India to live with her distant uncle in wintry Yorkshire. Spoilt and unhappy it’s only when Mary meets a local lad, Dickon, and learns of the lost garden that she begins to take an interest in the house, its inhabitants and the stories it holds. But can the two of them find the key to the garden and unlock the secrets growing inside?
This spellbinding brand new musical adaptation of the classic children’s novel is guaranteed to blossom in the imaginations of children young and old.
