‘The cutest puppets on the block… truly magical’

The List *****

Stone-Age Stories: Ug, Bug & Dug (2:00pm)

Age 4+
Have you ever eaten uncooked earthworms, raw snails in their shells or the rough bark off the trunk of a tree? No? You’re lucky! Pity the poor Oogadugga Oogadugga Oogadugga clan, Ice Age surviving, pre-Neanderthal cave dwellers. Without fire, this would be their disgusting daily menu unless the three youngest clan members – Ug, Bug and Dug – can find the precious and magical life-giving flame that they call ‘Figgy’…

Created by the wonderful Theatre of Widdershins, this show is inspired by the 1981 film ‘Quest for Fire’ (and a lot of Grimm’s fairy tales) and presents the hardships of Stone Age life using storytelling, puppets and prehistoric humour.

Cave art workshop (3:15pm – 4:45pm)

Age suitability: 7 to 11 years

Please add to basket after booking the show (20 places)

Dug’s favourite hobby is to decorate the walls of the clan’s cave, with pictures of mammoths, woolly rhinos and giant reindeer. Take a look at the art and the beasts of the Old Stone Age with Andy Lawrence and his workshop helpers and then recreate Dug’s paintings using the technique called Monoprint. It can get a bit inky, so it’s best to wear old clothes, an over-shirt or an apron.
