Oldilocks and the 3 Bears

Oldilocks finds a teddy bear in the park and remembers a delicious bowl of porridge she tasted years ago in the woods. Something else happened but she can’t quite remember what… so she sets off for the forest.

Join Oldilocks as she sets off for another adventure followed by a scruffy old pigeon. Will she find the bears' house and what will happen then?

A wonderfully funny and warmhearted celebration of the classic story, starring a naughty old lady who looks very familiar… and 3 funny bears who love their breakfast.

Expect to be spellbound by lovingly crafted puppets, music and some steaming bowls of porridge!

The latest show from Garlic Theatre, who have previously brought Eggs on Legs, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Three Little Pig Tails to Norden Farm.

Geoff Norcott: I Blame the Parents

The fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of Conswervative, Traditionalism and Taking Liberties.

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever’s wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers… some bigot from four hundred years ago.

Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there’s an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has realised he’s also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?

WHY? 'Sets himself apart from the liberal commentariat with a sharp self-knowing wit ★★★★ The Times

Marlon Solomon - Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale

Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened.

From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever, how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to current issues in the Labour Party. It's a comic tale which is no laughing matter.

Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale is a piece of documentary theatre, in 2018 it became the first one-person show to be performed in the Houses of Parliament. It also won Best Spoken Word at Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in the same year.

WHY? 'Funny, moving, at some points deeply disturbing, and provides absolutely essential context for the worst aspects of how we live now' David Baddiel

Online streaming tickets are also available for this event – so you can enjoy the show live from the comfort of your home

'Shrewd, funny and important' Jonathan Freedland (The Guardian)

'Compelling, shocking, essential' Al Murray
