The Castle Builder


A production which has been a huge hit at Edinburgh Fringe Festival is set to make its way to Weston's newest theatre venue - and you could win tickets through our competition.

Kid Carpet and Vic Lewellyn have teamed up to take the audience on a musical journey through the minds of some of the most wacky and eccentric individuals.

Not only do the pair star in the production, they also wrote the show.

The Castle Builder tells a true story – and one which is sure to make you think.

The inmate of a Norwegian psychiatric institute built a castle on some remote land.

But no-one seems to know about it, and this show explores a number of personal tales about artists who have been creative in the most extraordinary of places, and have created the most extraordinary of structures.

They may be hidden from the real world – but they mean so much to that individual.

The stories are told by the two actors through live music, dancing, storytelling and creativeness live on stage.

This show has already been a hit in Bristol, having enjoyed a week-long run in the city and will now be in Weston for just two nights – so don’t miss out on this eclectic piece of theatre.

The Castle Builder will be at the Theatre Tropicana, in Marine Parade, on June 14 and 15. The show will begin at 7.30pm and will last 55 minutes. This show is suitable for anyone over the age of 12.
