When Trolls Try to Eat Your Goldfish by Dommy B

Monday 15th February 2021 at 11am and 2pm

A fun, interactive, live-stream adventure story show for children 5+ and their families

In the middle of the night there is a noise – a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood…. A line of troll-prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark night. When a grotesque gang of greedy trolls steal all the village’s pets (including Nikki’s favourite goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third), who is going to come to the poor animals’ rescue?

Armed with only a pen, some paper, and our collective imaginations, Dommy B invites YOU to help save the day!

Land of Nod by Byteback Theatre

A beautiful sensory storytelling show exploring the magic of bedtime and the beauty of children’s imagination for Ages 0-5 years and their families.

The day is almost done. It’s time for Nod to tidy up and go to bed. But Nod doesn’t want to tidy his toys… he wants to go on adventures!

Join Nod on his magical journey where his imagination can take him anywhere… deep into the beautiful sea where the colourful fish live or up high into the night sky to play amongst the stars.

Inspired by the poem Wynken, Blynken and Nod by Eugene Field.
