We have been to Malvern many times, but never had the chance to visit this little place. What great fun!!! It was like entering a weird and timeless den, with wonderful sound effects. The story of The Snowcake Man was the 5 minute performance, and worth every penny!! Sitting on the red velvet bench at the back and being transported... More

Called in with little ones during half term, came out absolutely enchanted. Wonderfully charming puppet show in gorgeous tiny theatre. Held the attention of the children for duration of the short show and allowed them the freedom to explore the den like theatre and engage with the props and musical instruments afterwards. Absolutely wonderful, highly recommended.

You will find nothing like this anywhere else. Totally enchanting shows, only a few minutes long, but the memories will linger on.

A beautiful experience which should not be missed. It's something unlike anything else /unique/ which must be enjoyed for what it is. The brains behind it is a wonderful character who has created a wonderful and inspiring English theatre.

tempting, tiny little shows performed 'on demand', do not miss if you are in and around Malvern. Just beautiful and would engage and enchant anyone of any age or disposition. Truly a little piece of eccentric, wonderfully artful theatre

I noticed this on TripAdvisor and as we were on holiday in Malvern anyway we thought we'd pop in. Run by a charming gent who told us all about the history of the theatre, and how he converted it from a toilet it made an interesting diversion from a wet day outside. He then proceeded to perform a puppet show... More

Now we were all on holiday in Great Malvern, with my extended family that is and we decided to do some sightseeing. On a previous occasion my sister had paid a visit to this quaint little theatre but her reviews were all pretty negative. Still I decided to pop in. We were welcomed by a charming gentlemen and quickly seated... More

Quaint, quirky and exceptional. This an experience that you just can't get anywhere else in the World. This alone would make any visit to Malvern worthwhile - and there's a lot to see and do in Malvern! It's now award-winning, but don't let that put you off. If you can afford £3, (which is the price of a cup of... More
