Half Term Fun!

A very, very long time ago there lived a fisherman, together with his wife, in a small cottage made of dirty old metal. They had everything they ever needed and were happy and content. Then one day a talking fish starts granting the wishes…

This traditional story from the fairy tale collection of the Brothers Grimm has a sudden rebirth and renewed relevance in the present day. The story is told from a box, mounted at the front of a penny farthing bicycle and will keep both children and adults entertained.

This 25 minute show, with an opportunity to meet the puppets at the end, is a delight for families of all ages. These performances will take place in the Great Hall, Tamworth Castle.

There is a limited capacity of 12 tickets available for each performance.
Social distancing will be observed, and all audience members will be asked to adhere to strict guidelines.
NHS Track and Tracing will be mandatory
