    Farmer Who's Enormous Turnip and The Three Little Pigs
    Farmer Who's Enormous Turnip Traditional Storytelling

    “The best show of its type that we have booked.”
    Fielding Primary School, Ealing

    Farmer Who's in trouble. Because he never went to school, he’s forever mistaking his horse for his cow, his pigs for his sheep and his carrots for his potatoes.

    Then he has a brainy-wave. He'll get some really clever children to teach him! Soon, everyone’s mooing and baaing, digging and sowing, pulling and tugging, and reliving the many wonderful adventures that he and his animals have down on the farm.

    Ever popular and always entertaining, these traditional stories provide excellent opportunities for audience participation while covering a host of curriculum topics including: ‘communication, language and literacy’ and ‘knowledge and understanding of the world'.

    Running time: 45 minutes - stories tailored to age range (3 to 7 year olds)
