Down to Earth

Join Betty, Doris and Arthur as they explore the textures, smells and tastes of their World War II allotment. You’ll be visited by a mischievous mole and will escape to a magical and relaxing forest, where you’ll encounter bees buzzing around their hives.

Made especially for young audiences described as having profound and multiple learning disabilities, this multi-sensory show creates a welcoming and enchanting world with music, puppetry and lots of invitations to take part in immersive interaction.

Bamboozle are delighted to be touring this especially adapted show, which ensures that individual attention is given to every audience member. The production has been carefully designed to fully accommodate social distancing and make sure that all interactive elements are delivered in a Covid-safe way.

‘A magical, relaxing experience’ Andrea, parent
‘A lovely experience to bring us together in such strange times. Safe, inclusive and such a pleasure’ Sam, parent
‘Ingenious, refreshing, uplifting’ Kate, parent

About Bamboozle
Too often in our society learning disabled children, and their families, are not heard; they are left out, made to feel that they don’t belong, let alone have their voices heard. Many of the children and young people we work with are unable to speak for themselves. They can’t express themselves in ways that most of us take for granted. But they do have things to say.
What we do at Bamboozle is to unlock the doors to enable them to find their own voice. We do it by producing immersive accessible theatre which tours the UK and internationally, deliver schools projects in the UK and work with families locally and in China.

Performance presented on tour by house, delivered by Farnham Maltings and funded by Arts Council England.
