Concert: The Cardinals (Ten Days on the Island)

From Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 at 7:30 pm until Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Cardinals-619x619St. David’s is proud to be part of Ten Days on The Island and is hosting performances of The Cardinals.

“Three cardinals are here to perform for you an elaborately decorative puppet show depicting the most recognisable tales from the Bible. However their puppets have gone missing, so the cardinals are left with no choice but to step in and act out the stories themselves on the puppets’ tiny stage.”

Details can be found here.
