Arthur Ransome's classic returns this Summer!

A Summer revival of one of most popular shows, We Didn't Mean To Go To Sea.

Fresh from their 'Swallows and Amazons' adventures, John, Susan, Roger and Titty pitch up at Suffolk's Pin Mill ready to take on the challenges of the East Coast.

When the children are invited aboard the 'Goblin' they have no idea that their world is about to become a larger and scarier place.

Left alone in charge of the boat they find themselves battling the elements and fighting for survival on the open seas.

Nick Woods' wonderful adaptation of the classic Arthur Ransome novel can be seen at The Hush House at Bentwaters Parks in Suffolk and at Nene Park in Peterborough during July 2016.
