Dogs Don’t Do Ballet

To kick off the summer holidays with a fun and warming outdoor show… Get the kids up and moving with Biff…

Biff is not like other dogs. He doesn’t do dog stuff like weeing on lampposts, or scratching his fleas, or drinking out of the toilet. No, Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog. He thinks he’s a ballerina!

We are delighted to have Little Blue Monster Theatre join us to perform Dogs Don’t Do Ballet. Get ready for an afternoon of songs, puppetry and lively story-telling.

An outdoor show that will play whatever the weather …

We supply a limited number of seats and blankets to sit on. You are welcome to bring your own to make your family comfortable,

[one of the Gardens’ volunteers was inspired to knit some mini Biffs – puppies with tutus… We love them, hope you do too.
