THE National Trust will be hosting a new outdoor theatre performance at a Kinver beauty spot this August.

Same Difference Arts will be presenting ‘Squirrel Walnutkins Saves the Planet’ at Kinver Edge and the Rock Houses on Saturday August 5, at 2.30pm and 5.30pm.

The show, which follows Squirrel Walnutkins on an adventure to stop the last tree in Evergreen Wood from being cut down, is suitable for all the family and is designed to engage special educational needs and primary years audience members.

Claire Hale, operations manager at Kinver Edge, said: “We can’t wait to host Same Difference Arts at our places this summer.

“This family-friendly production tells the tale of a group of woodland creatures on a quest to save their homes from being destroyed.

“It’s a light-hearted, engaging play for little ones with a very important message for the whole audience.”

Tickets are on sale now and cost £10 each for adults, and £8.50 per child (plus booking fee), and they are available from the National Trust website or the booking office on 03442 491895.
