Elly runs the best little farm in Lincolnshire, but not everything is going to plan. The corn has been trampled, all the apples have vanished and there’s hay everywhere! What could have happened? Come and help Elly and Bob the Pheasant fix the farm in time to save the harvest, and discover the secrets of the mystery animal hiding in the hay-stack.
Nature Elly is full of interactive fun, beautifully written original music and a cast of stunning and adorable animal puppets for little ones to meet. Created by award-winning Barmpot Theatre (creators of the theatre show Penguinpig), in association with Little Angel Theatre, and commissioned by Lincolnshire One Venues and SO Festival.
Nature Elly is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, with further funding from Lincolnshire One Venues, Louth’s Riverhead Theatre, Grimsby’s Culture House, the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, the RW Chapman Trust, Little Angel Theatre and SO Festival.
Barmpot Theatre Awarded "Best for Rural Community Theatre Entertainment 2018 - Lincolnshire" in LUX Magazine's 2018 Entertainment Awards
