Tickets are free, but reservation is required.

Back by popular demand, Last Baguette is delighted to be working with Celebrating Age Wiltshire to bring free open air theatre to Malmesbury!

Somewhere in Britain, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not.

A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist and magic.

This fun and farcical adventure is a deliberately anarchic and anachronistic re-telling of the Arthurian Legend with live music, physical comedy and lo-fi acrobatics. And some silly jokes…

The Last Baguette makes entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences and is company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham. The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools.

“The show was a real joy...delicious twinkle-in-the-eye humour to engage, entertain and delight people of all ages.”
Richard Wolfenden-Brown, Director, The Plough Arts Centre
