Performances at Splat!:
Curious Cargo – Meadow Sprites
Charming, cheeky and thoroughly engaging, these magical creatures have flown in from the meadow to explore the human world. Watch them as they fly and flit about, spreading summer’s warmth and tales of their woodland habitat. Now you see them, now you don’t!
Bread and Butter Theatre Company – Topiary Bushes
Two huge topiary bushes nestled in gigantic terracotta pots – this is horticulture on a grand scale.
Passers-by will be surprised and delighted by the mischievous garden fairies that live within. But beware, they can be over-zealous with their watering cans!
HandMade Theatre presents – Flying The Nest
Welcome to Hatchling College, an eggciting place to learn all about native birds and how to be a good birder. Sit in a giant nest and get involved in this interactive eggsperience led by our three eggstrodinary professors. Filled with a fantastic mix of music, puppetry, facts and fun, this humorous show brings to life native bird characters in a new and engaging way.
