Suitable for children aged 5 and up, The Fisher-Knight's Tale is a pop-up adventure for intimate settings. Meet Laura, the Fisher-Knight!

But where have all the fish gone!? And who is cutting down all the trees?
Based in South Devon, Wild Toy Theatre is a fledgling company creating puppet theatre on an intimate scale. We tell original stories inspired by rural themes, including wildlife, folklore and local heritage. This performance will be followed by a pop-book craft workshop (5+).
