The Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense

Calf 2 Cow TheatreThis event has now finished

Beware the Jabberwock! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Run for your life! Save yourself!

The village of Pokeytin is under threat. Crops and cows disappear in the night, Mrs Dodos' washing has been pinched from the line and Mr Walrus can't find a single oyster! Who is to blame? Why the Jabberwocky of course! But is this monster really as bad as those old locals make out?

Calf 2 Cow present a hilarious new adaptation of Lewis Carroll's famous poem Jabberwocky. Expect multi-rolling, floor-stamping rock ‘n’ roll and a giant dragon puppet, breathing actual fire (we hope)! Grab your Jubjub bird, and your best mad hat, and prepare yourself for the belly-laughing quest of a lifetime. This is the Jabberwocky as NEVER seen before...

Suitable 6+
Running time: 90mins + interval

* Gardens open from 5:30pm for picnics. Please note that this is an outdoor performance - bring your own chair/blanket to sit on plus a torch. Assistance dogs only.
