The Bear

From the book by Raymond Briggs

Adapted by Pins and Needles

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?
One night when she's fast asleep, Tilly is visited by an enormous bear. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared.

The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.

Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.

'Move over War Horse, this polar puppet is magic' The Guardian

John Percy: Metaphorically Speaking

In this exhibition, the artist presents paintings that explore choice, decision and chance as a metaphor for the process of living in a modern, complex world.

The aim is to make enigmatic, poetically powerful, contemplative objects expressing a sense of the continual struggle between necessary order and desirable anarchy.

The Enormous Turnip

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

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
