Family Theatre: Dr Dolittle

8 August- 18 August (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)

Join Wild Immersive Theatre and embark on a journey into the animal kingdom.

It’s always a beautiful day in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. Felix the Cobbler has found an injured squirrel and needs your help! He knows of a Doctor who can speak to animals, but first we must find them. Can you track down the Doctor to get the little creature the help it needs?

Along the way you’ll get up to all kinds of mischief, learn how to speak the language of animals, discover the world of bird mail and carry a special message to Dr Dolittle themselves.
