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
Additional Information about Open-Air Events after 19 July
You'll be seated on the grass, so please bring low-backed camping chairs, rugs and cushions to sit on. This open-air performance is designed to take place even in inclement weather and so we recommend that audiences come prepared for all eventualities of a British Summer and bring a torch for evening events! No umbrellas, and assistance dogs only please.
Following the Prime Minister’s confirmation that social distancing measures will no longer apply to performances after the 19 July, we are increasing the number of tickets available for this performance. However, we will continue to implement certain guidelines for best practice to ensure the safety of our volunteers and audiences at events this summer. Our community venues will continue to provide hand sanitiser stations and encourage audience members to wear a face covering when visiting indoor spaces such as the toilets/bar etc. You can view our current guidance here.
Artsreach will monitor its guidance in accordance with any future government advice and publish updated information as required.
