Dukes says goodbye to 'sparkling' Merlin

John Freeman
Alsas! Alack! There’s just a few days to go before Merlin the wizard casts his final spell over Williamson Park in Lancaster.

The Dukes very successful 25th anniversary season of walkabout shows ends on 20th August – after extending its run for a week.

Merlin and the Legend of King Arthur has received 4-star reviews in the national press and proved a bit hit with audiences too.

Here on VL, our reviewer praised the show as "a great night out, a real treat and well worth the money."

Next year, The Dukes will stage Sabbat in the round inside a large marquee in Williamson Park as part of the 400th anniversary commemorations of the Lancashire Witch Trials.
