Adapted from the classic children’s tale by Arthur Ransome, Swallows and Amazons tells the story of the Walker children, along with their mother, who embark on a summer trip to the beautiful Lake District. Desperate to escape the tedium of the holiday they sail out on their own for the first time aboard the marvellous Swallow. On their explorations they land ashore a seemingly deserted island and claim it as their own. However they soon realise that they are not alone, with two other children who captain their own vessel; Amazon, claiming the island to be theirs, leading to a battle of wits to determine who will triumph and take the island as their own!
