Based on the much-loved classic children’s book by Jill Tomlinson, this funny, reassuring tale about Plop, the baby Barn Owl and his fear of the dark has been created especially for children aged three to seven-years-old and their grown-ups.

Plop is a baby barn owl, he is exactly the same as every barn own that has ever been, except for one thing. Plop is afraid of the dark.

One day, Mrs Barn Owl suggests Plop fly down into the world to find out about the dark for himself.

And this is where Plop’s adventures begin. So far, more than 100,000 people have watched the show, and it’s still playing to packed theatres both nationally and internationally.

Brought to life with an irresistible blend of music, puppetry and storytelling, this enchanting show brings this classic tale to a new generation of theatre-goers.

The show starts at 2pm and tickets cost £6 for an individual or £20 for a family of four. They are available from or by calling the box office on 01524 582803.
