A wonderfully funny and warmhearted celebration of the classic story starring a naughty old lady who looks very familiar… and three funny bears who love their breakfast.

One winter, Oldilocks finds a teddy bear in the park and remembers a delicious bowl of porridge she tasted years ago in the woods. Something else happened but she can’t quite remember what… so she sets off for the forest. Will she find the bears house and what will happen then?

Garlic Theatre hold their young audience spellbound with lovingly crafted puppets, music and some steaming bowls of porridge.
