The Enormous Turnip

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company are bringing their re-potted version of the famous children’s storyto the city on September 9.

A spokesperson said: “Living in their tiny shed amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything.

“Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed, try for one more champion vegetable and one more trophy

“But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, bigger than the dog, bigger than you and me put together. It’s gigantic and it’s still growing!”

“The show is a feast of fast action, brilliant puppets and is set in a delightful garden. The audience needs to be ready to help solve the problems the turnip starts to cause and everyone won’t be able to stop smiling.

“The ending is a real surprise.”

Tickets for The Enormous Turnip start from £14 and can be booked online at or by calling 01543 412121.
