King Coels' Curtains


​​​​​A season of outdoor theatre in Colchester's Castle Park continues with a production for families.

Old King Coel is not a merry old soul. He called for his bowl, that didn’t help. He called for his pipe, that made him worse, and don’t even go there when his three fiddle players started to perform. Can a tailor from Colchester, with his magical needle and thread, help?
