Arley Hall & Gardens Northwich Cheshire CW9 6NA
11 am and 2 pm dailyBuxton Pavillion Gardens, Buxton, Derbyshire
The Babbling Vagabonds are working with Moors for the Future Partnership to create a free outdoor theatre event in the Pavilion Gardens from 30 September – 3 October.
In true Babbling Vagabonds style Bogtastic will deliver an important message, this time looking at the balance of the eco system within our beautiful moorland habitat, but wrapped up in a family-friendly show that everyone can enjoy.
The story takes place under the ground, beneath the moors, where Cottongrass and Bilberry live! Fairies descended from the great bog protectors ‘Stinky’ and ‘Quagmire’. They work tirelessly to keep the balance in their peaty home. It’s hard work, but they love their world and they will do whatever it takes to keep harmony amongst the hummocks and hollows of their blankety bog. Then one fateful day a new threat emerges from ‘them on top’, plunging our plucky bog fairies into a desperate battle. It’s an epic struggle they won’t be able to win on their own. They need help. But from who?
The show will last about 45 minutes and performance times are 11 am and 2 pm each day. Tickets are FREE, but please book in advance: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/166928271955
