Alice in Wonderland is the first show presented at Worden Park by theatre company Pendle Productions

Pendle Productions have again teamed up with South Ribble Borough Council to bring a six-week summer season of shows to the park, guaranteed to entertain all ages.

Starting with the irresistible family favorite Alice in Wonderland yesterday, families took the opportunity to experience all the magic of Lewis Carols timeless classic, featuring , of course, Alice, the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit and a host of other musical characters.

Following that on 30 July 30 is the fantastic new production of Peter Rabbit and Friends, with spectacular costumes and set.
