Tarn Road,


A funny Dragony Tale. Fairytale fun for all the family.

Brought to life by acclaimed Blunderbus Theatre, Dotty the Dragon is a big-hearted tale of true friendship told with magical songs, enchanting music and exquisite puppetry. Little people aged 3+ will love this funny, laugh-out-loud tale. But, big people will have lots of fun, too. The perfect family treat.

Dotty is a baby Fire Dragon. She lives in a dusty old castle with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon. She loves to watch the children playing in the village below, and wishes she could play with them, too!

One day Dotty has a brilliant idea - she will fly down to the village and say hello! After all, everybody loves surprises, don’t they? But will Dotty make new friends, or will the village folk chase her back home again?

This dragon-sized show is full of charm. With lots of laughs, plenty of surprises and a giant fire-breathing dragon, Dotty is the perfect fairytale adventure.

Please remember, this is an outdoor show. If it rains, the show will go ahead regardless. Don't worry, as we provide waterproof shelter so you stay nice and dry.

We are unable to offer reserved seating, but our venues do offer a very comfortable freshly mowed lawn. So, bring along a blanket, or low-backed seating, and don't forget to arrive early to bag the best spot.
