The Little Match Girl

The Last Baguette Theatre Company: The Little Match Girl

A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s traditional tale.

London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets.

In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the cold the flames blaze to life and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we enter the tumultuous world of her imagination, meeting talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.

Having delighted audiences in 2017 The Last Baguette return with this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show. The company use their signature style of visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale. Written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award.
The Last Baguette are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham. We make fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy, and believe in the power of physical comedy and silliness to talk about important issues of our times. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric. We have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada.

Fizzlebert Stump

Beautiful Creatures Theatre: Fizzlebert Stump

Join Beautiful Creatures Theatre for a high-flying, tightrope-walking, slightly hypnotising adventure. A brand new, hilarious adaptation of AF Harrold’s much-loved book for children featuring puppetry, magic and a lion with false teeth!
Once and once only, there was a boy whose name was Fizz.
Fizzlebert Stump lives in the travelling circus. His best friend is a sea lion, his history teacher is a magician, and every night he puts his head right inside a lion’s mouth. It sounds like a frightfully exciting place to live, don’t you think? But it’s the library, of all places, where Fizzlebert stumbles into a terrifying situation of great peril, where he finally makes a friend, and where his strange circus skills really come in handy!
Presented with the kind permission of A.F. Harrold & Bloomsbury Publishing and supported by South Street Arts

Oskar's Amazing Adventure

Theatre Fideri Fidera: Oskar's Amazing Adventure

Fun-loving puppy Oskar is bored in Grandma’s snowbound little house on top of the snowy mountain, so he runs all the way down the mountainside to find a friendly animal to play with. But where are all the animals? And why must Oskar wait until spring before he can play his favourite game again?

This heart-warming show uses a rich mix of storytelling, physical theatre, puppetry, music and song to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the wilderness of the Alps.
After the show the children can meet the performer and play with the animal characters.
