The Mousehole Cat is a well known Cornish storybook that we have grown up with in Cornwall. Created by Antonia Barber and adapted by Alan Kent this story has come to life for Christmas in Mousehole!
Following last years nomination for Best Theatre Show in Cornwall (2016 WOCAs) and a sell out festive show they have returned to Mousehole this year. Missing out on tickets last year we were sure to head along to The Mousehole Cat for take two.
Mowser the puppet cat is a great character no matter what your age with a heart warming Christmas production that’s a great family day out. Team it with visiting the famous Mousehole Christmas lights, and it’s a magical trip for your little ones.
The show is running from the 17th to 31st December in the Solomon Browne Hall in Mousehole. With finger puppets, songs and fishy lanterns it is a great interactive way to tell the story behind Tom Bawcocks Eve to locals and visitors alike. You’ll hear about all of Mowsers favourite Cornish fish recipes, with Stargazey Pie, or Starrey Gazey Pie, as his best loved meal!
Set in a very small and intimate venue it feels like you’re part of the tale, and with only 4 people involved in the production the skills on show are amazing. It only runs for about an hour it’s not too long for small children to sit and watch either.
All tickets are £10 and it’s recommend for anyone over the age of 3.
Last year it was a sell out performance, and there’s not many tickets left this year, so get yours here quick.
Here’s a little taster of what to expect…
