Catch That Beast

There are no scheduled instances of Catch That Beast . You can view similar events below.

The Royal Society of Beastologists are a group with one mission: to track down mythical beasts.

They can’t wait to come to Norden Farm, meet their new members and capture the Monstrous Beast of Maidenhead. They’ve heard it’s been causing all sorts of nuisance.

But Jessy, the youngest Beastologist, has her doubts about beast hunting. What if beasts don’t want to be found? When Jessy is left behind at camp, an encounter with the Beast could help her transform the ways of the Beastologists for good…

Catch That Beast! is a magical, deliciously silly show about how we interact with wild things and how the youngest among us might bring about change.

Full of humour, live music, inventive puppetry and audience participation, it is suitable for everybody aged 5+ years.

One Snowy Night

A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth.

One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…


Percy the Park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…

The treasure hunt is tactile and the clues are suitable for children with visual impairments (with adult assistance). You can also scan a QR code to listen to Michael Rosen reading his poem once you have completed the trail.

We’d love to read your creations and share your experiences of taking part in our treasure hunt. Tag us in your pictures @nordenfarm on Instagram and Twitter / @nordenfarmcentreforthearts on Facebook!
