From the moment Captain Calamity and Crew rocket in from The Lollipop Lighthouse in Chocolate Button Bay, the craziness explodes onto the stage.

This is a sparkling mix of magic and mayhem like no other. Expect jaw-dropping family fun and insanity featuring marvellous magic, bombastic balloons, beautiful bubbles, silly science, gigglesome games, cheeky tunes, one or two custard pies and more whizz-bang than the most explosive fireworks display you every gawped at!

Don’t miss this Catherine Wheel of disaster set loose by a smelly dragon, a mad scientist, a musical storyteller and the biggest buffoon of all, Captain Calamity. 

Ideal for families and children of all ages.
