Easter is near | See some eggcellent theatre this holiday

Now that with the easter break days away, there are lots of things that you can plan to keep your loved ones entertained.

Don’t miss out on these fantastic shows as they are performed across Cornwall:

Cousin Jack’s Percy Pengelly and the Wibble- Wobble | Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens

1 to 16 Apr at 2 & 6pm & relaxed performances weekends at 11.30am
Roll up! Roll up! Roll up… ladies and gentlemen it’s time to join the fantastical Percy Pengelly in his more than marvellous Cornish big top for Cousin Jack’s BRAND-NEW, high-energy theatre show!
Wibble wobble with Percy as he searches for a new job – from world-famous tightrope walker… super dooper pooper scooper…to
the giddy heights of rooftops.

The show is based on the wonderful book by Cadgwith-based author Jenny Steele Scolding, illustrated by Andy McPherson.
We love Cousin Jack’s shows – from Dandy Lion – their beautiful puppetry show at Trebah Garden about a unique lion cub (picture
below) – to their highly acclaimed adaptation of The Mousehole Cat which celebrated its seventh consecutive year last Christmas.
They work hard to cater to families on all budgets, offering flexible ticketing from £12. The free ticket draw scheme gives away
hundreds of tickets to families who can’t afford them.
