Gingerbread Man & The Three Bears

On the 19th of August, at 3pm, join the Gingerbread Man on his wacky adventure to avoid becoming a tasty snack, in this mash-up musical for all ages!

From the team that brought you ‘Little Red Riding Hood & The Three Funky Pigs’ and ‘Dracula’s Dodgy Dinner’ comes a fabulous modern twist on two classic fairy tales packed with songs and fun for all the family.

In the tale of the ‘Gingerbread Man and the Three Bears’, you will be left on tenterhooks! Can the Gingerbread Man outrun Eric the Pig, a Chicken with ideas above his stations and a thespian Fox?

But watch out for those very naughty bears who’d rather start a bit of bovver than have a nice bowl of porridge!

Written by acclaimed playwright Simon Downing & West End Musical Director Kevin Oliver Jones.

Gilbert Whites House

Gilbert White was aged 7 or 8 when the White family moved from the Vicarage on Selborne’s Plestor, to this house, called ‘The Wakes’ (named after the Wake family who had lived here previously). At that time the property would have been no more than a ‘two up, two down’  but over the subsequent years lots of extensions and additions have been made, creating the long sizeable house you see today.

The rooms have been restored following descriptions in White’s own correspondence and include a chair he used at Oriel College, Oxford (loaned from the College), items of contemporary furniture, family portraits and bed hangings embroidered for him by his aunts.

On display is the original manuscript of his book, The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne, which was purchased with generous help from English Heritage and others.
