What's On

Hoot Owl

Tuesday 21 August 2018


Bring a picnic and enjoy this live adaptation of the award-winning picture book!

Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl – he’s a Master of Disguise! And he plans to use his cunning camouflage powers to gobble up the tiny animals of the night. Trouble is, Hoot Owl’s prey keep escaping! Is Hoot Owl as masterful as he thinks he is? Will he become a member of the Owl Parliament? And will he EVER succeed in catching himself some dinner?

Bring a picnic and enjoy Hoot Owl live on stage amongst the trees at Batsford Arboretum! Original songs, colourful puppets, animation, hilarity, ridiculousness and rapid costume changes abound in this wildly inventive show from Proon Productions, based on the award-winning picture book by Sean Taylor, with sets faithful to Jean Jullien’s visually creative illustrations. Suitable for little ones...and grown-up wrinkly ones!

Gates open from midday for picnics. The show starts at 1pm and lasts approx 1 hour, plus a meet & greet at the end of the show with Hoot Owl and the gang!

£10 for adults (£9 for Batsford members);

£8 for concessions & children aged 4-15 years (£7 for Batsford members);
