The Fir Tree

by Tove Jansson

From Tales in Moominvalley

The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.

Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.

Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.

Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.

The Enormous Turnip

Living in their tiny shed amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything!

Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed.

But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, the dog and you and me put together! It’s gigantic, it’s roots are under the house and it’s taking over!

Unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in a re-potted version of this world-famous and much loved children’s story!

WHY? ‘Puppetry, live music and good old-fashioned charm sprout up left, right and centre’ The Stage
