Little ones look forward to educational fun for a good cause at Canal Walk this winter school holiday.

The shopping centre’s Centre Court will be transformed into a theatre for their annual children’s theatre production.

This year producers Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer will be presenting a tale of giving and equality in Robin Hood.

This musical feast promises to warm hearts and leave audiences thinking about the good they can do in their own ‘hood’.

A five metre talking tree, speaking falcon, Maid Marian and a host of other loveable and admirable characters, will help Robin on his quest to give to others, defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham and find love.

Canal Walk is also asking patrons and theatre goers to bring a can of food to help them and the LEAP schools to feed the minds and bodies of those less fortunate.

The tins gathered during this time – 17 000 (6 700 kilos) are required – will be constructed into a mosaic representing former President Nelson Mandela on Mandela Day (Monday 18 July) at Canal Walk.
