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 Garlick Theatre, who have perviously brought Eggs on Legs, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Three Little Pig Tails to Norden Farm.

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
