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.

The dragon and the bone queen made their first appearance in a specially commissioned performance called The Sacred and the Profane in July 2016. Check out the full act below, and then come along on June 3rd and meet some of those involved in person, and discover what these strange festivities really mean.

This event is co-produced by Records of Early English Drama North East. It forms part of the Durham Festival of the Arts taking place throughout the city from 2nd to 3rd June.
