Spellbinding immersive outdoor theatre live at

Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve

Savour the flavour of nature as it comes to life, weaving through the heart of the Somerset Levels.  Part tour, part theatrical experience, this tale of the unexpected will connect you with nature, up close and personal.  It is outdoor performance accompanied live by the boom of the Bittern, the majesty of the Marsh Harrier, and the secrets of the Great White Egret.

After a great deal of badgering, Pete has convinced Somerset Wildlife Trust to let him & Ivan run a tour of Westhay Moor in The Somerset Charabanc.  What tales will Pete tell today? What stories, buried in the bog, will he unearth? And will Ivan leave the path?

Set and performed on a 1920’s miller’s cart pulled by two Suffolk Punch horses, audiences and performers are brought together in an intimate, spellbinding adventure.  Starting and finishing at Westhay Moor Car Park, the show travels through the epicentre of Somerset Wildlife Trust’s prize Nature Reserve. Suitable for ages 5+.
