“Puppetry, live music and good old-fashioned charm sprout up left, right and centre” - The Stage


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, 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! Following sell-out performances last year, Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company returns to The Montgomery with unswerving energy, live music and eccentric puppetry in this re-potted version of the world-famous children’s story.


For seedlings aged 3-10 and their families.


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.
