Puss in Boots digs his claws into the sloping stage at Trestle Arts Base next Saturday, October 31.

The show by Marcello Chiarenza, adapted and performed by Patrick Lynch from CBeebies, is part of the Get Creative Family Arts Festival

Using smoke and mirrors and hidden trapdoors Patrick shows how the sure-footed feline fools both the King and the Ogre to put his master at the top.

Puss in Boots features a host of puppets, a working windmill and an avalanche of fruit and nuts.

The performance at the arts base in Russet Drive, St Albans, begins at 2.30pm and tickets at £12/concessions £10 and a family ticket £40 are available from the box office on 01727 850 950 or online at

The Live Music Project hosts a Halloween Spectacular next Saturday evening with fancy dress and lots of extra events.
