It’s The Most Enormous Turnip You Will Ever See And It’s Coming To Lichfield!

Famous children’s story to be re-potted at the Lichfield Garrick

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company are bringing their re-potted version of the famous children’s story, The Enormous Turnip to the Lichfield Garrick on Sunday 9 September. Following their highly acclaimed performances of Goldilocks & The 3 Bears and The Emperor’s New Clothes, this unswervingly energetic company return to Lichfield with a brilliant adaptation featuring wonderful puppetry, live music and massive vegetables!

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 see, try for one more champion vegetable and one more trophy!

But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, bigger than the dog, bigger than you and me put together! It’s gigantic and it’s still growing! Help save the day as we all pull together to get this enormous turnip out of the ground before it takes over Lichfield and then the planet!

Daniel Ingleby, The Lichfield Garrick’s Deputy Head of Marketing said: “The show is a feast of fast action, brilliant puppets and is set in a delightful garden. The audience needs to be ready to help solve the problems the turnip starts to cause and everyone won’t be able to stop smiling. The ending is a real surprise.”

The Enormous Turnip is playing at the Lichfield Garrick on Sunday 9 September with performances at 1.30pm and 4pm. The show is perfect for seedlings aged 3 – 10 and all the family. Tickets start from £14 and can be booked online at or by calling the Box Office on 01543 412121.
