Theatre – ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’ at Unicorn Theatre (14 to 26 April)

Based on a book by Jean Giono

Back by popular demand following a sell-out run in April last year, this charming and very funny combination of comedy, puppetry and storytelling is simply not to be missed. Early booking is strongly advised.

A French shepherd sets out with his faithful dog to transform a bleak landscape by the simple act of planting trees. As the years pass, their fledgling forest must endure two World Wars and unscrupulous evelopers to take root and flourish.

An inspiring and unforgettable story, with a positive environmental message, that shows us the difference one man (and his scene-stealing dog!) can make to the world.
