Thursday, 9 August: Little Blue Monster Children’s Theatre presents Pirate Pearl and the Big Blue Monster (for ages 3+)

Set sail on this swashbuckling high sea adventure, especially for little pirates and their grown-ups!

Ahoy there, land lubbers – hop aboard the good ship Mirabel and join our rollicking adventures on the high seas. Pirate Pearl lives with her crusty old crew, Barnacle the dog and Mr Puskins the cat. One day, Pearl finds a stowaway onboard ship. It’s a baby monster, but, if you feed a baby monster, it grows into a BIG, CLUMSY MONSTER! With songs, puppets and live music, this fantastic family show will have you singing along, dancing in the aisles and laughing till your sides split.

Gates will open at 4pm for a 5pm start.
