Visit the incredible world of Stuff and Nonsense with The Adventures of Little Red Hen…

“Who will help me plant these grains of wheat?”
“Not I” said the Pig.
“Not I” said the Rat.
“Not I” said the Cow.
“Fair enough,” said the Little Red Hen, “I’ll do it myself!”

Making bread is hard work, but it would be a lot easier if the lazy farmyard animals got off their reclining sofas and lent a hand! Join our plucky little hen as she finds her own way to get stuff done.

An energetic adaptation of this much-loved story, featuring a breathtaking combination of brilliant puppetry, live music and unforgettable comedy.

“This was truly one of the best performances I have seen. Fully enjoyed by all 3 generations.” – Stuff and Nonsense Audience Member
