Oldilocks and the 3 Bears

The first of three shows coming to the Norden Farm stage for Christmas 2020.

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.

Norden Farm is excited to present a BRAND NEW magic show, written during the first government lockdown, perfect for the whole family to enjoy. The show contains a ton of comedy, music, ‘virtual’ audience participation, and of course, plenty of mind-blowing MAGIC, that will make you say phrases such as:

‘WOW!’

‘THIS IS AMAZING!’

‘CAN I HAVE A REFUND?’

Patrick is a professional actor, presenter and magician. His magic has taken him around the world, having made appearances on ITV's Britain’s Got Talent, BBC Radio Four and the nationwide talent show Britain Does Variety. He is also a member of the prestigious Magic Circle and was their youngest member when accepted in 2018.

Tankus the Henge - Album Tour

Tankus the Henge perform their only show in 2020 since lockdown began.

A genre bending, never ending, furious and joyous force. Normally on the road most of the time, defined by movement, groove and the search for adventure, Tankus the Henge have been making and breaking their own rules for a while now.

Originally based around the songwriting of singer/pianist Jaz Delorean and inspired by the hard graft ethics of an early 20th Century travelling show, Tankus the Henge will often play upwards of one hundred gigs a year in Europe. They have performed on stages across the world, from New Orleans to Albania, most places in between, including Glastonbury Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, WOMAD, and countless others.

Their funk-fuelled repertoire is wildly eclectic, ranging from explosive rock riffs to New Orleans swing, and an insatiable love for a good singalong round the piano.

WHY? They will be performing their brand new album Luna Park! in full, along with other songs from their decade long repertoire

Attendees to the show will have the opportunity to purchase the new album the night before it is released. The entire performance will also be streamed in high quality.

Tankus the Henge's Website

'A virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul. With copious helpings of R&B, blues, funk, disco, Django, a dose of Dexy’s, a drop of Ray Davies and a pinch of Madness… – it’s an exciting mélange of sound' The Guardian

'Tankus the Henge have a reputation for whipping crowds into a frenzy, and penning choruses it’s impossible not to sing along to' Metro (top 10 acts to see at Glastonbury)

'That’s wonderful, ..I love that. It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in. His voice is his own, …so great. I love it' (Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker) Dave Davies, The Kinks

'Like The Clash from New Orleans' Nikolaj Torp Larsen, The Specials

Pinocchio

The third in a series of three shows coming to the Norden Farm stage for Christmas 2020.

The objects of a carpenter’s workshop bring to life the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father. A one man show starring Steve Tiplady, as Geppetto.

Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience.

Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it’s inventive, visually and verbally witty with a big heart.

'Wonderful work that celebrates the possibilities of theatre' Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

'Truly magical… captivating' The Scotsman
