Something is happening in the woods…

Voices can be heard, and a strange metallic smell fills the air. Machines are gathering at its edge and a mysterious call is heard across the valley. Laura the ladybird, Jeffrey the spider, Brett the Woodlouse, and Willoughby the Woodpecker are worried. Velda the Vixen knows there’s one person who can help them – Granddad.

But is there enough time? Can they save the wood?

And will the mystery stranger help?

This is an incredible show and a beautiful piece of puppet theatre.
