This year’s promenade production The Jungle Book is already underway and will be performed Tuesday-Sunday at 7.15pm until Sunday, August 28.

Step into the jungle of Lancaster’s Williamson Park as this adventurous story is told by our heroic wolves, cheeky monkeys and jungle creatures as you are led through all the twists and turns of this famous story adapted by Andrew Pollard.

With the enchanting park as their backdrop, this epic setting for the story of Mowgli, Baloo and the fearsome villains Shere Kahn and Kaa is told as you follow the drama by moving from one wonderful jungle location to another.
