Round & About

Local children set to star in Pinocchio at the Cornerstone 

If you’re going to see this year’s Christmas show at Didcot’s Cornerstone don’t be surprised if you recognise a few of the young faces on stage. 

Alongside the professional performers are 45 local children, chosen from open auditions held earlier in the year, to join them in teams of 15, the three groups rotating through the busy schedule from 7th to 29th December in The Adventures of Pinocchio. 

In this fun family Christmas adventure, meet Gepetto as he creates Pinoccho and follow the puppet with the growing nose as he learns to make sense of a confusing world. Join him on his journey finding fame and fortune to ending up in the belly of a whale – will he side with the good Blues Fairy or fall foul of the tricky Fox? 

The classic tale of Pinocchio is brought to life with music and songs beginning at the Spinning Yarn Storytelling Bar with The Blues Fairy and her band The Crickets telling the story. 


The Adventures of PInnochio runs at the Cornerstone from 7th to 29th December. 

Tickets £16, concs £14.50, family ticket £52.
