Welcome to the Curious Creatures wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson, world-renowned explorer and zoologist.

Unfortunately, he is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig…

Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to an irritable alligator, an overexcited elephant, and a very intelligent orang-utan!

(No animals were harmed in the making of this show. But several puppets were mildly traumatised)

A FREE post-show puppet making Discover Workshop will be taking place in the Discover Hub (next to the Spiegeltent) [suitable 5+].

Children welcome
