Nettles in the Garden
Springing out from an old brown suitcase, come and see a magical garden bloom to life! Join Greta Green Thumb the Gardening Clown, and her pal Nettles as they discover the wonder and adventures to be had within nature. Witness mischief makers messing, monkey business brewing and shenanigans shimozzle! ‘Nettles in The Garden’ is a show full of joy with inclusion, accessibility, and laughter lying at its heart. Using no spoken text alongside puppetry, clown, and a sprinkle of audience participation, you’re all invited to bring your giggles and share in this delightful world. An original tale with original music, we hope to see you for some laughs and fun soon! ‘Nettles In The Garden is a beautiful puppetry show that weaves magical storytelling and music to keep young audiences thoroughly engaged throughout. The hand crafted puppets were mesmerising.’ Sarah Sharp, Theatre Delicatessen Producer
