Crock Of Gold_120London Bubble’s latest promenade performance sees them take you a wander into the woods in pursuit of a mysterious philosopher, The Great God Pan, the police and a smattering of leprechauns. The show begins at dusk, and darkness falls as you explore the park and discover surprises lurking in peculiar places.

This mischievous yet hauntingly beautiful tale is based on James Stephens’s acclaimed 1912 novel, The Crock Of Gold. Stephens is one of the forgotten greats of Irish Literature, whose work has been favourably compared to his contemporaries such as Yeats, lewis Carroll and Edward Lear.
