Louth’s Riverhead Theatre has a treat for youngsters as Rhubarb Theatre present a kaleidoscope of visual fantasy with The Flying Flapper.

The story centres round the wonderfully inventive life of one of Britain’s most daring adventurers.

Voted 1925 Bravest woman in England - pilot, wing-walker and housewife - Doris Grimblebottom.

Retired in her small cottage in the Lincolnshire countryside, the days seem a little lonely.

But when her washing machine breaks down, Doris calls out the best handyman for miles around... Stan.

Suddenly the opportunities for adventure and DIY seem limitless; there is more to this little old lady than meets the eye.

A family show for those aged five years and above, The Flying Flapper is an imaginative and fantastic story, full of inventiveness, humour, mask, puppetry, songs and live music.

There will be two shows - 11am and 2.30pm - on Saturday, February 15.

Tickets cost £6 for adults and £4 for under 14s and can be booked by calling 01507 600350 between 10am and 1pm Monday to Saturday or through the new online booking option at www.louthplaygoers.com at any time.
