The Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense presented by Calf 2 Cow Theatre – 22nd August 2023

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 “The Jabberwocky”.  Expect multi-rolling, floor stamping rock ‘n’ roll and a giant dragon puppet, breathng 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.

Gardens open from 5.30 pm for picnics and the performance starts at 7.00 pm, lasting approximately 80 minutes plus intervals.  It is recommended for ages 6+.

Please note that this is an outdoor performance – bring your own chair/blanket to sit on plus a torch.  Assistance dogs only please.

Adults £14.00   Under 18’s £6.00  Family £36.00 (2 Adults 2 Children under 18 years)
