This show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour.

A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including The Boy, The Banker, The Butcher, The Baker,

The Bellman and The Knitting Beaver set off on a quest to catch the mythical Snark… on the journey they encounter the Jub Jub Bird, the sly Bandersnatch and the dastardly Boojum… Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver escape the hungry Butcher’s clutches? Will the Baker remember

his name? Does anyone know what a Snark actually looks like? It has been described as side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs.

Tickets for the show can be booked by visiting or call 01536 414141
