Roll up; roll up, for the most magnifical, tremendible and fantasticulous experience in town! The caravan of curiosities and its crew of mysterious misfits have arrived to entertain, amuse and beguile.

Join Dr Longitude in his quest to discover how many legs a ‘Decapus’ has. Is the fabled ‘Massive Paw’ a myth? Has anyone even seen a ‘Bumblewasp’? And what do you feed a ‘Whistling Pank’?

Packed with puppets, music and magic and from the makers of The Terrible Infants and The Trench comes the world’s weirdest wonder emporium! And a cow that looks like Brian May.

If Roald Dahl and Tim Burton had ever met and decided to open a travelling circus, the result might have been something close to Les Enfants Terribles’ superb storybook world of The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie.Edinburgh Spotlight

‘Les Enfants Terribles create a visually striking and highly fantastical world of circus and carnival, where anything seems possible.’ Total Theatre
