The Vegetable Nannies

A strolling interactive performance

Meet the Vegetable Nannies and their precious home-grown charges.

Wheeling an ancient Victorian pram laden with a prized collection of Vegetable Babies, the Nannies are out for the day, telling tales and proudly showing off their allotment cherubs.

Audiences are able to befriend, pet, feed and comfort all manner of earthen toddlers, such as Magnus the downhill-skiing watermelon, Jessica the award-winning sweet potato beauty queen, and David, the talented little marrow whose ambition is to become a stage actor.
