Dragon bravery coming to Dosthill Park next week

Popular touring theatre group, Quantum Theatre, will be performing a classic retelling of ‘St George and the Dragon’ from the author of The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame. The Reluctant Dragon is a funny, touching and enchanting story of bravery and friendship and will be live in Dosthill Park on Saturday, June 23.

The production is guaranteed to thrill audiences with this live performance; making it a must-see for this summer.   


The story describes a young boy who befriends a poetry-loving dragon living in the Downs above his home. When the townsfolk send for St.George to slay the dragon, the boy needs to come up with a clever plan to save his friend and convince the townsfolk to accept him. St George has to do battle with the dragon, but what happens when the dragon simply won’t fight St George?
