18th October 2018

£4, £3 schools/groups, £12 family (2+2) Duration: 45mins Age: 4-9 years


This colourful, fun show is a comical mixture of the Old McDonald Had A Farm nursery rhyme and The

Three Pigs traditional tale. The Three Pigs are fed up singing “E-I-E-I-O” on Old McDonald’s farm and

decide to move out of their barn across the field. On the way they meet loads of farm animals and see all

the food growing in the fields, but when they start to build their houses, the wolf appears and tries to blow

them down! Can you help save the day?


Featuring one of the biggest books you’ll ever see (a huge 5m wide), the show allows for lots of audience

participation. The show encourages children to take a greater interest in books and helps with literacy

topics including rhyming, traditional tales and retelling stories. It’s ideal for teaching PSHE and science

topics such as healthy eating as children identify fruits and vegetables, harvest food from fields in the

farm and learn about animals living on the farm and even some not found on a farm!
