The Great Vegetable Plot - Unbound Theatre

The storytellers of Unbound Theatre bring a brand-new half-hour family show to Waddesdon – a perfect tale for a summer’s day.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

Nellie and Neville take their duties as garden gnomes very seriously. Whilst the humans in the wide world succumb to slumber, they patrol the flower beds and vegetable patches, determined to keep the peace. Or should that be peas?

However, trouble is afoot. Cartwright the Caterpillar and his lackies are out to destroy this year’s harvest. Soon a fiendish scheme unfolds; one that will not only out Nellie and Neville’s skills as garden guardians to the test, but might also mean the end of their partnership altogether…

An hilarious (and a little bit heartwarming) tale of horticultural adventure, this special family show is a must-see for all ages.
