Roll up, roll up, for the most magnifical, tremendible and fantasticulous experience in town! Siblings Longitude and Latitude are here to take you on two terrific adventures. Bring your family picnic and blankets for an extraordinary experience set against the breath taking beauty of Stowe Gardens.

First, Dr Longitude and his team of ‘experts’ are here to guide you through a puppet-packed, ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour of the Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie’s finest exhibits.

Then onwards to The Fantastical Flying Exploratory Laboratory, where Dr Latitude and her team of misguided misfits are on a global quest, discovering incredible and entirely ‘fictitious’ new lands, tribes, flora and fauna previously unknown to humankind!

Last year’s performance was loved by all and this is a chance to picnic in the gorgeous gardens and be thoroughly entertained by antics of Les Enfants, guaranteed to amuse all the family.

“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

“A beautifully-realised, pacey production performed with great panache.” - Fest

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