The Greenhouse

Sophie & Marie NüzelBooking Info

A magical dance performance about the senses of plants!

The plant world is full of wonders. Did you know that plants have senses just as we do? They can see, hear and feel you!

Come and join Peppina and Pimpernell on a magical journey into the senses of plants. Using dance, spoken word, music and installation two performers introduce young audiences to basic plant biology, exploring some of the wonderful things that plants are capable of doing.

Discover how the apple tree makes sure that all his apples are red at the same time. Find out what secret messenger system the willow tree uses to fight off the caterpillar and join us as we explore what plants need to grow and survive.

The Greenhouse is a magical dance performance for young audiences and their families, and you'll event plant your own plant to take home with you.

Running time: 45mins, no interval
Suitable for children aged 4+
Please bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens before/after the show
