Join us for an outdoor performance of the The Jabberwocky & Other Nonsense by award-winning theatre company Calf 2 Cow

Beware the Jabberwock! The jaws that bite, The claws that catch! Run for your life! Save yourself! AHHH!

The village of Pokeytin is under threat. Their crops and cows disappear in the night. Mrs Dodos' washing has been pinched from the line and Mr Walrus can't find a single oyster! Who is to blame? Why the Jabberwocky of course!

Calf 2 Cow present this hilarious new adaption of Lewis Carrol's (Alice in Wonderland) famous poem The Jabberwocky. Join them as they tell the tale of our young hero from Pokeytin, armed with their vorpal sword, brave the journey to take on the fierce Jabberwock, knock his head off and save the land! Huzzah!

But is this monster really as bad as those old locals make out?

Expect the Calf 2 Cow treatment of silly multi-rolling, kicks and trips, live floor-stamping rock n roll, water buckets, sweaty actors and a giant dragon puppet, breathing actual fire! We hope.

Grab your Jubjub bird, and your best mad hat, and prepare yourself for the belly-laughing quest of a life time. This is the Jabberwocky as NEVER seen before.

One for all ages.

Produced by the Garden Theatre Festival and Calf 2 Cow, Supported by The Point, Eastleigh



Calf 2 Cow Productions, proudly based in Bath is quickly developing as a new touring slapstick comedy theatre company creating highly visual theatre full of live rock n roll, bonkersness and mayhem. Our mission is to create and tour hilarious, boundary-pushing theatre using creative and energetic sweaty storytelling for nearly everyone! (ages 4 - 104! - anyone younger or older is not allowed in. SORRY!) Our work has been seen across the UK and a couple of times in Europe, so we are international in a sort of way.

Our latest work included The Wave, a swashbuckling tale of three pirates stranded at sea, and their struggle not to go mad, funded by Arts Council England, the Wave toured over May and June in 2022 including visits to The Points Unrwapped Festival, The Salisbury International Festival and Festival on the Sea, Grimbsy. Over 2021 and 2022 C2C toured a new adaption of Wind in the Willows across the UK selling out shows and visiting the most stunning venues. In our early life span, C2C has made over 10,000 people chuckle and smile.
