About the Show

Join me – Puss in Boots – on my incredible adventure in medieval Catalonia, helping my master Mick the Miller’s son follow his destiny as a chivalrous knight, rescuing a princess from a villainous bandit king and getting home in time for fresh-baked cakes and buns. Olé!

Acclaimed Sydenham theatre company Spontaneous Productions returned to the bowling green in Mayow Park with another magical theatre show for families with children of all ages. From the same team who brought you Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Sinbad the Sailor, Pinocchio and The Snow Queen expect a magical story, amazing songs and dance routines, comedy and swashbuckling sword fights!
