Family Theatre: The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, Wed 14 & Thu 15 August 2024

Quantum Theatre is bringing to Morden Hall Park a delightful new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved tale — The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck .

  • Booking essential

An outdoor theatre performance of the classic children's tale.

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 ‘gentleman’ who offers her the perfect nesting place in his wood-shed.

But why is his wood-shed full of feathers and why is he asking her to collect the 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?

This Quantum theatre's charming adaptation will have you spellbound so why not grab the kids, a blanket and a picnic and join Jemima and Kep on their hair-raising adventures.
