The Enormous Turnip

TICKETS:* £9.50

Living in their tiny shed squeezed in amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s amazing prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything. Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed, to try for one more champion vegetable and one more trophy. But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, bigger than the dog, bigger than you and me put together!

It’s gigantic, it’s blocking out the light and it’s still growing.

Help save the day as we pull The Enormous Turnip out of the ground before it takes over the planet!

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company return to The Octagon Theatre with unswerving energy, live music and eccentric puppetry in this re-potted version of the world-famous children’s story.

Meet the characters and puppets after the show.

With support from The Point and The Berry Theatre. Originally created with support from Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, in association with Salisbury Playhouse and The Merlin Theatre.

For seedlings aged 3-10 and all the family.

Tickets: £9.50
Concessions: £7.50


A £1 ticket levy is included in all stated ticket prices.
