In a tiny house the size of a shed, Mr and Mrs Chickweed live on their allotment surrounded by vegetables aplenty. But they can’t resist planting one more seed and as their turnip grows it threatens their house with disaster! Can anyone help pull up their Enormous Turnip?

Stuff and Nonsense return with their unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in this re-potted version of the world-famous children’s story.
