LOST WORLDS, Umbrella Art's new season production based on the legend of Lyonesse, will be performed at The Acorn Theatre, Penzance on Saturday at 2pm.

This is a magical concoction of battles, wizardry, potions and even a love story.

Following the successes of Long Legged Beasties and Out of the Box, John Brolly and the Umbrella Arts Theatre Company return with this latest storytelling extravaganza.

Join The Story Hunter on his death-defying adventure to find the lost world of Lyonesse. The journey will introduce you to the ancient heroes of Cornwall as the young Tristan earns his spurs as a knight of the round table and defeats the terrifying invaders from Ireland.

The beautiful Iseult's mother tricks him into drinking a love potion and starting an affair that leaves Lyonesse, Cornwall and King Arthur's England at the mercy of their foes. Can Merlin save the day?

The whole family will enjoy this glorious dip into the crazy world of John Brolly.

Arrive early and enjoy the fun pre-show activities including free face-painting and a treasure hunt.

Ticket prices are £5 adult, £3 children. Booking from www.crbo.co.uk
