THE stage is set for an epic family adventure show where Will Tell will face off against the Big Bad Baron this February half term.

The show, which has been highly recommended by audiences and critics at the Edinburgh Fringe, will be in Andover next month.

This original production for families introduces a new legendary figure to British drama - the ‘Swiss Robin Hood’, Wilhelm Tell, who refused to bow down to a tyrant and famously had to shoot an apple off his child’s head with a crossbow as a punishment.
