Have your say

If you like dragons, and you like puppets, then The Spring Arts Centre in Havant is the place to be today at 2.30pm.

Presented by Hand to Mouth Theatre, The Dragon’s Tale is a retelling of the story of Saint George and the Dragon. It is told in a series of flashbacks by the ageing Dragon and his troupe of glove puppets.

Musical accompaniment is provided by the equally world-weary Damsel in Distress playing the hurdy-gurdy.

Children will love the knockabout nonsense and adults will appreciate the story. Suitable for children aged four to eight. Tickets: £5-8, visit
