FREE EVENT // Pif-Paf Bee Cart – Outdoor Family Theatre

Come and join Bombus and Borage and their fabulous Bee Cart. An outdoor family theatre show for the whole family to enjoy!

About this event


Bee Guides Bombus and Borage have left the Hive with the Bee Cart – their mobile world of interaction and surreal but true information exploring all things Bees and Pollination. The Bee Cart, informed by science and fact, is an exciting, accessible theatre piece for family audiences of all ages.

Bee Guides Bombus and Borage are from a secret government organisation called The Human Union of Pollinators – preparing for the worst but hoping for the best with their mobile world of interaction, Bee wisdom and surreal fun.

Delve into the world of Bees, and try out their Buzz Pollenator or their Flapper-Winger-Tronerators, meet a giant Varroa Mite, and maybe even get your nose pollinated!

This performance last approximately 45minutes.

The Bee Cart has been developed and toured extensively with support from The Co-operative Plan Bee. It was commissioned in 2009 by the British Science Association.
