The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck

Join Quantum Theatre this summer in the ruins of Corfe Castle as they present a delightful new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much love tale – The Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck

New for 2024, Quantum presents a delightful new adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved tale — The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck .

Prevented from hatching her eggs at the farm, foolish Jemima goes in search of a nesting place in the forest and soon she meets a charming ‘gentleman’ who offers her the perfect nesting place in his wood-shed. But why is his wood-shed full of feathers and why is he asking her to collect the herbs for roast duck? Back at the farm, the Collie-dog, Kep, puts two and two together, but will he be in time to rescue Jemima from her fate?

Bring your own blankets, cushions, and camping-chairs, come prepared for the weather – the performance will continue come rain come shine!

Performance will begin at 7pm Gates open at 6pm

Ticket Prices: Family (2 adults & up to 3 children) – £45 Family (1 adult & up to 3 children) – £38 Adult – £18 Child (5-17) – £9 Under 5 – Free
