Wednesday September 20th 2023Share page

To celebrate balletLORENT’s 30th year, we present our new heartwarming show The Velveteen Rabbit, premiering this November at our home in The John Marley Centre.

Inspired by Margery Williams' tale, toys come to life through the magic of storytelling, music, and dance, creating a captivating show for the whole family. 

In this entertaining dance theatre performance, a toy rabbit and a boy embark on an adventure, discovering the essence of growing up and the meaning of love.
