    Tickets On Sale //SN Presents // Jeddybear & Gary’s Picnic


    Join Facebook event here

    This show is a new family comedy show. It’s popularity comes from the Hull City Of Culture comedy festival.

    Produced by two of Hull’s favourite comedians Gary and Jed.

    The guys have SOLD OUT shows across Hull for the upcoming ‘Back To Ours Festival’ this February but we are bringing them to Scunthorpe.

    There will be one show on Sunday 22nd April at 2pm at The Wortley House Hotel on Rowland Road.

    Tickets are £5 each and available at The Wortley reception. (Cash sales only) if you can’t get to the Wortley for tickets then drop us a message at Scunthorpe Nights.

    The show is suitable for anyone 2+

    So are you sitting comfortably?
    Hull’s comedy duo Jed and Gary are going to tell you a story, well that is until a very naughty bear storms the stage!

    Gary just wants to tell the teddy bear’s picnic story, whilst Jed just wants to get up to mischief.

    Mayhem and madness ensues in this not-so-traditional telling of the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. There’ll be music, dancing, and pie facing madness…well what else would you expect from these Hull Comedy Festival favourites?!

    Feel free to bring your own teddy bear along to the show. And don’t be shy as there might be some audience participation.

    Bring the family together this Christmas with our new Grotto Experience.

    Brothers, sisters, cousins and close friends, bring them all as a group to Brigg Garden Centre this year and together enjoy the most magical Grotto experience we have ever created. This new 40 minute experience gives children the opportunity to spend more time with the elves in their workshop – creating a Christmas decoration for you to take home and assisting the Elves in making magical reindeer food. Join in the Christmas cheer as you sing Christmas songs with the busy elves before you enter Santa’s Grotto.

    Knock quietly on the door before you enter, Santa may be sleeping (he’s a very busy man you know). Once you have woken the jolly old elf from slumber, Santa chats with the children in the comfort of the cosy Grotto. Then it’s time for presents! A little knock on the hearth of the fireplace and from the chimney a present appears, beautifully wrapped and labelled with your child’s name, a special gift from Santa. Have your photograph with Santa and choose from a range of products to have your picture displayed before collecting your golden ticket to board the magical train ride.

    Online booking only. ONLY £10 per child and £1 per adult.

    Bookings can be taken for one to twelve children and larger group parties are welcome. If you would like to book a larger group in to see Santa then please call us to check availability and to book your party (subject to availability). Please see full terms and conditions on our website. Due to the nature of experience this year we can only accept advanced bookings.
