Join Malcolm Brushell, professional painter and amateur alchemist, on his quest to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks, mashing every conceivable vegetable, and even bottling and fermenting his own cow’s wee, he has created every colour imaginable...except for that rascally illusive pink, but he won't give up! A colourful explosion of puppetry, music and comedy, join the race to create the most pigmented pink paint ever patented!

The Lost Colour by award winning Half a String is the first show designed for The Puppet Van. Perfect for families with children aged 5+

Three Inch Fools: Robin Hood (Book now)
Friday, 3 September
7-9.30pm

Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, struggle to remember Britain’s best-known folktale.

This summer, a hapless troupe of actors hit the road with a calamitous new production of Robin Hood. Prepare for a riotous summer adventure fit for all the family as The Fools battle to tell their own version of the legendary tale at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK.

Expect the full Three Inch Fools treatment – an evening packed with wildly inventive story-telling, fast-paced drama, a host of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!

Comedy Club 4 Kids (Book now)
Saturday, 4 September
1-2pm

Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits! It's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and thus there is a higher than usual chance of heckles like “Why is that your face!?”

Stand up Comedy with Lou Sanders, Josh Weller, Annie McGrath, and Carl Donnelley (Book now)
Saturday, 4 September
7.30pm

A night of brilliant standup comedy from four top comedians. As a live performer, Lou Sanders performs regularly both in the UK and around the world. In 2018, her show Shame Pig was the joint winner of the Comedians' Choice Award for Best Show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and she returned to the Festival in 2019 with her show Say Hello to Your New Step Mummy.

Sanders was declared the winner of the eighth series of Taskmaster in 2019, and has also appeared on television shows including QI, Would I Lie to You, Travel Man, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Hypothetical, and The Russell Howard Hour.
