Fee-fi-fo-fum – I smell the socks of a Scarborian!

There’s a rumour going round town that a giant has built a castle above the coastal clouds of Scarborough. A terrible giant. Meaner than mean and nastier than nasty. 

It’s all rubbish of course. Jack started the rumour by accident, but now he’s the obvious choice to head up that weird beanstalk he grew in the garden, above the clouds and destroy the beast! After all, it’s only a rumour. Isn’t it…? 

This Christmas the team that brought you The Snow Queen, Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland and A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol invite you up the Beanstalk to discover the truth!
