Cost of Entry: Tickets from £17.50
Classic fairytale story, a ‘rags to riches’ tale about a kind-hearted girl who suffers various hardships only to marry the Prince of the kingdom.
Why is Cinderella called Cinderella?
Since she is shunned by the rest of her family, (especially her stepsisters!) the poor girl sits among the ashes in the chimney corner – hence her cindery name
The ‘rags to riches’ transformation comes about when Cinders, who wishes to attend the royal ball, has her wish granted and subsequently meets the Prince. Although she has to flee the ball and return home – losing one of her slippers in the process – the Prince searches for and finds her, thanks to what is perhaps the most romantic shoe-fitting in all of literature!
