The team at New Lanark World Heritage Site are delighted to present this year’s wonderful fun-filled pantomime, Wee Red Fae The Woods, brought to New Lanark by the Arkeen Theatre Company.

Based on the classic fairy-tale, with a Scottish twist, children and adults alike will love this enchanting fun tale, this festive season.

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the panto.

The Arkeen version of Wee Red Fae The Woods does indeed include the naughty villain.

The family-friendly pantomime tells the timeless story of Red as it exports you on a magical journey as your favourite fairytale comes to life in a fun-packed pantomime for the whole family.

Find out the secret ingredient that gives the forest animals the strength of a bear, the wisdom of an owl and the cunning of a fox. Rap, dance, shout and blow the house down!

This classic tale is to be presented at New Lanark World Heritage Site by this much-loved local theatre group on Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas Eve – curtain up at noon, 2pm or 3.30pm.
