Come and meet Durham’s very own dragon and dance with a ‘bone queen,’ at this fascinating display on the North-East’s theatre heritage. This free event, to which all are welcome, takes place in the Department of Music, Palace Green on 3rd June, from 19.00 to 20.30.
The Dragon and the Bone Queen will feature a show of medieval and Renaissance music and costume. With Hector Sequera (lute), Barbara Ravelhofer (speaker), and various performers, including a 16-ft dragon inspired by the worm legends of the North East.
