Stuff and nonsense at Jacksons Lane

IMG_1548

Managing Editor Abbe Bates and her son Herbie enjoyed a performance of Goldilocks and The 3 Bears in London recently at the lovely Jacksons Lane theatre in Highgate. The children’s story is brought to life by kids theatre company Stuff and Nonsense with amazing costume, puppetry and acrobatics, and some witty dialogue too. It was Herbie’s first visit to the theatre, and he thoroughly enjoyed it! The show is currently on tour until June.
