It’s time to get baking!
Eggs crack - Butter melts - Puffs of flour fill the air -
The perfect platter of gingerbread people is ready for the oven.

But one of these biscuits has other ideas…

Ginger tells the tale of a misshapen gingerbread person, discarded and marked for the bin. Follow our biscuity hero as they inspire a picture-perfect kitchen to come alive in a cacophony of chaos.

Created by multi-award-winners Tortoise in a Nutshell, in association with Lyth Arts Centre and Platform.

This 1-hour event includes a 35 minute show, followed by 25 minutes’ of gingerbread decorating.
Recommended for ages 3 – 7.
