About the Show Less...

Mr and Mrs Chickweed's house is being taken over by an enormous turnip. Can anyone help pull it out? Read More >

The Enormous Turnip tells the story of Mr and Mrs Chickweed. Living on an allotment in a tiny house the size of a shed, the pair show off their prizewinning vegetables for the last time before they retire.

However, they can’t resist planting one last seed but as the Enormous Turnip grows it threatens their house with disaster! Can anyone help them pull up the Enormous Turnip?

Following sell-out performances of The Three Little Pigs last year, Stuff & Nonsense return to Jackson’s Lane with their infamous blend of unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music. This re-potted version of the world-famous children’s story promises surprises aplenty for those in the theatre and out on the street too!
