As schools' Easter holiday fast approaches, here's an idea to keep the kids busy and entertained: the new stage adaptation of 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe', the first book of the fantasy novel series, 'The Chronicles of Narnia', written by C.S Lewis, opened on Tuesday this week (March 17th) at the newly restored former church St. Stephens, in Hampstead, North London, and will run until April 19th.

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe tells the story of "four young children [who] are evacuated to a mysterious country house. There, they discover an enchanted wardrobe that leads them into an adventure more exciting than they could ever have imagined…"

'The Chronicles of Narnia' were published between 1950 and 1956, and the first two books, 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' and 'Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia', have been adapted on screen, respectively in 2005 and 2008.

Performances will run Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, with Saturday/Sunday matinees at 3 .30pm.

Tickets cost £18, £14 (concessions) and £ 10 (for under 13s).
