About the event

“The first thing to do when treating a poorly beastie is to calm it! The best way to calm it… is to tell it a story!”

This summer Babbling Vagabonds want to take you on an adventure into the unknown. They want to hardwire your imagination and take you on a trip that will refresh the senses, even on a hot day.

Join their brave zoologists, the ‘Monster Menders’ as they take care of strange and peculiar creatures. Discover the wonderfully weird and woolly, the slimiest and smelliest, and those shy secretive monsters that slither and wobble about in our wonderful world.

Could you tangle with a five-headed Hottle-Spottle with toothache?

Becalm a Big Bottomed Banghanger with belly rot? 

Soothe a silver-tongue-slimp-slatherer with a drooling problem?

If you have a big imagination and are brave enough to take a step into the unknown, then this wild walk is just what your family needs. Every time you find the Monster Menders a different story is made, each tale a unique experience.

Coming this summer 2019, a brand new outdoor, adventure theatre show from those ‘funsters’, the Babbling Vagabonds!
