Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie

Roll up; roll up, for the most mysterious, magical and magnificent experience of your life! An enormous exotic caravan has suspiciously arrived in town complete with strange characters that entertain, amuse and beguile. Are you ready to watch and learn from Dr Longitude and his Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie?

Packed with Vaudeville acts, live musicians and puppeteers, feast your eyes on this wondrous treat for all the family. Touring 2014 after a hugely successful year and co-commissioned by Without Walls and GDIF, award winning theatre company, Les Enfants Terribles, present an extravaganza fit for a king or a pauper!

How many legs does a ‘Decapus’ have? Is the fabled ‘Massive Paw’ just a myth? Have you even seen a ‘Bumblewasp’? What do you feed a ‘Whistling Pank’?

Find out and let the zany Dr. Longitude and his strange travelling players regale you with their mesmerising stories of wit, virtue and courageous endeavours all bursting from their weird and wonderful imaginations. Our professional zookeepers will share their witty and twisted tales rendered with a bizarre theatricality that is all their own. Journey with them as they venture through sizzling safaris and snowy Siberia. Float among the clouds and plunge into the murky depths of the sea as they search for fascinating animals both exotic and rare. But why are they telling their stories and what’s lurking behind their facade?

Enter and be entertained by the world’s weirdest wonder emporium!
