Piers Torday's Box of Delights opens at Wilton Music Hall

Nov 28, 2017

Piers Torday’s Box of Delights, based on the 1935 Christmas classic by John Masefield, opens at Wilton Music Hall this Friday. Box of Delights is a pacy, wintry adventure story about a boy who's given a magical time-travelling box and must keep it safe from an evil sorcerer.

Piers Torday’s enchanting re-imagining of the story features original music, puppetry and star performances from Olivier-award winner Matthew Kelly and three-time Olivier award nominated Josefina Gabrielle. Set amidst the vaulted ceilings and frescoes of one of England's oldest architectural gems, Wilton Music Hall provides the perfect backdrop for Torday's festive spectaculaire. 

‘I couldn’t be more excited that such a talented team is bringing The Box of Delights to life for a new generation – and at Wilton’s – wonderful!' Stephen Fry
