Visit the incredible world of Stuff and Nonsense.
Making bread is hard work, but it would be a lot easier if the lazy farmyard animals got off their reclining sofas and lent a hand! Join our plucky little hen as she finds her own way to get stuff done.
An energetic adaptation of this much-loved story, featuring a breath-taking combination of brilliant puppetry, live music and unforgettable comedy. Stuff and Nonsense are well-known for their clever, captivating storytelling, ingenious stagings and ability to make us all laugh, returning to Polka after a hugely successful run of The Gingerbread Man last year.
"Truly one of the best performances I have seen. Full enjoyed by all 3 generations"

Children’s Theatre Reviews
One small bear’s big adventure...
The Everywhere Bear has a wonderful time with the children in Class One, but one day he gets more than he bargained for when he falls unnoticed from a backpack and embarks on his own big adventure! He’s washed down a drain and whooshed out to sea, rescued by a fishing boat, loaded onto a lorry, carried off by a seagull... how will he ever make it back to Class One?
This captivating and beautiful story, from best-selling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Rebecca Cobb, springs to life with rhyme, original music and delightfully expressive puppets in Polka’s fun and exciting stage adaptation.
