Outdoor Theatre: The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck

A perfect summer holiday treat for younger audiences and new for 2024, Quantum presents a delightful new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved tale, 'The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck'.

  • Booking essential

Prevented from hatching her eggs at the farm, foolish Jemima goes in search of a nesting place in the forest and soon she meets a charming 'whiskery gentleman’ who offers her the perfect nesting place in his woodshed.

But why is the woodshed full of feathers? And why is he asking her to collect herbs for roast duck?

Back at the farm the Collie-dog, Kep, puts two and two together, but will he be in time to rescue Jemima from her fate?
