Honk! The Musical

Join us at The Cloisters, Peterborough Cathedral, for this year’s open-air theatre musical ‘Honk!’.

Honk! tells the tale of ‘Ugly’, a young duckling who appears to look different to his brothers and sisters! Made fun of by the other farmyard animals, Ugly is lured away by the devious Cat who hopes to enjoy Ugly as a lunchtime snack! Just as Ugly clocks on to what is happening, he tries to run but can’t find his way back to the farmyard! On his search for home, he encounters some larger-than-life characters who all teach him different lessons which begin to help Ugly realise it’s what’s on this inside that matters!

With clever, inspiring songs and a whole lot of heart, this charming reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” will quack you up and bring a smile to your beak!
