The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck

As part of our 2024 Summer of Outdoor Theatre programme, we are delighted to welcome back Quantum Theatre.

Outdoor family theatre returns with this delightful adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s — The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck.

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?
