After successful runs in Edinburgh and around the UK, Les Enfants Terribles bring The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie to the venue as part of a UK tour.

Les Enfants Terribles aim to delight big children and little adults alike with songs, tall tales and some very peculiar creatures.

Ever wanted to count a Decapus’s legs? Or wondered what a Whistling Pank eats? Would you like to catch a glimpse of the fabled ‘Massive Paw’, or lick a Tresillian Toad? Or perhaps see a cow that looks like Brian May? Then you’ve come to the right place! Dr Longitude and his team of ‘experts’ are here to guide you through a puppet-packed, ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour of the Imaginary Menagerie’s finest exhibits.

Written by Anthony Spargo and Oliver Lansley, a published playwright who also works extensively in television co-creating/writing ITV2’s FM and numerous other projects including Whites on BBC2 and starred Alan Davies.

    Lansley was named a ‘Broadcast Hotshot’ by Broadcast magazine and won the ‘Multi-talented’ award at Channel 4’s 4-Talent Awards.

    Director of the show James Seager said: “I think the show succeeds in not patronising kids, which is important. It doesn’t talk down to them, and I believe that this is one of the reasons why it has a huge fun appeal and a real joy about it which adult audiences respond to.”

    The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie can be seen at 2pm on Sunday February 21.

    Tickets for the show are £14 for adults, £12 for children and family tickets of four people cost £48.
