the marvellous & unlikely fete of little upper downing

In Spring 2011 we toured The Marvellous and Unlikely Fete of Little Upper Downing, a new piece created and devised by Little Bulb Theatre, commissioned and produced by us.  In Spring 2012, we re-toured the show to village halls across the country. 

The most important day in the village calendar is almost upon us and the eccentric inhabitants of Little Upper Downing are all in a flutter. There’s gossip in the tearoom and a flurry in the florists to say nothing of the deep seated rivalry on the allotments. The village is pulling out all the stops and the fete hasn’t even started yet.

A theatrical feast celebrating the unique charms of village life and the people who live there.  Featuring live music, innovative puppetry, vibrant visuals and a vast array of unforgettable characters, all preparing for a big day that gets increasingly out of control…

Created and devised by Little Bulb Theatre

Commissioned and produced by Farnham Maltings
