The Enormous Turnip and Easter Fun at Norden Farm

The Enormous Turnip and Easter Fun at Norden Farm

This Easter bring the children to Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead to see much-loved children’s classic story The Enormous Turnip.

Living in their tiny shed amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything!

Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed.

But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, the dog and you and me put together! It’s gigantic, its roots are under the house and it’s taking over!

Unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in a re-potted version of this world-famous and much loved children’s story!


‘Puppetry, live music and good old-fashioned charm sprout up left, right and centre’ The Stage.
