Event 2: A package for Granny

A live musical puppet show for families.

Saturday 19th October at 11.00am

Granny is waiting on the arrival of a very special package.
While she waits with great expectation, she tells us stories and introduces us to some of the wonderful creatures who inhabit her world. Everything around Granny comes to life, even her tea pot and kettle.

a kiss for Granny.

This show appeals particularly to young children.
