The Teddy Bears' Picnic

"If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a big surprise…"

About the show

If you go down to the woods today
you’re in for a big surprise…

The teddy bears’ picnic! Where can we find it?
What’s the address? Are we invited?
Do teddies eat food? Is the tea they drink real?
It’s hard to digest, this mythical meal.

Theodor is a detective who found Timbuktu
and a two headed llama that lives in Peru.
Now Theo's hot on the trail of the famous teddy bears’ picnic… a tricky puzzle to pick.
Come join us and we’ll try our best
to help Theo on this cuddly quest.


The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is a theatrical treat for children aged 5+ and everyone else is welcome too. (Teddy bears are especially welcome!)

The Teddy Bears’ Picnic was supported by 
Riverbank Arts Centre.
