Apple Pip

Tuesday 10 December 2019 at 10:30 am - 11:30 am


Nutmeg Puppet Company presents a puppet show designed for a family audience with children up to 6 years old.

From spring blossom and summer fruiting, to autumn harvest and leaf-fall, Pip sings as she swings from the branch of an old apple tree. Once it produced the tastiest apples in the orchard, but now it’s neglected and all kinds of animals try to steal the last remaining fruit. Mrs Crabbe, the grumpy owner, plans to chop it down, but Pip loves the tree and wants to save it.

It is a 45 minute show with storytelling, exquisite puppets, an atmospheric set, original music and songs. It will then follow with a 15 minute craft workshop.

The show has been produced in collaboration with teachers, children & parents from Norfolk schools & pre-schools, and with advice from the East of England Apples and Orchards Project.
