Pull up a deck chair or a sun lounger and gather round the garden pond for an afternoon of funny tales written and introduced by Lynne Truss.
Gossip from the Garden Pond is about life amongst the lily pads, as the residents of a garden pond including a highly sexed Dragonfly, a ferocious Diving Beetle, a hotly pursued Water Boatman, a Tadpole who doesn't want to grow up, a timid Spider and a self-righteous Snail, all reveal the truth about life between the ripples.
If you thought life in the garden pond was tranquil and serene, think again.
This show is a follow-up to Tidal Talk From The Rockpool.
