All nursery rhyme characters love to party, perform and have fun! This April, some of the most famous faces from your favourite rhymes are coming together to present a spectacular nursery rhyme cabaret. 

Headed up by Nero (a cat who plays the fiddle) and Lazzo (a little dog who loves to laugh), the pair bring together their nursery rhyme friends to share their own special stories and skills. 

With special performances by Hickory Dickory’s Flea Circus, the famous dare-devilled egg himself Humpty Dumpty, and Incy Wincy, whose many legs make her Tango something to behold, Hey Diddle Diddle is a fun-loving, music-filled adventure with your favourite characters as you’ve never seen them before!

Hey Diddle Diddle features live music, puppetry, laughter, and lots of chances to join in. It lasts 45 minutes and every performance is relaxed, making it an ideal introduction to theatre.
