Come and meet Percy Pengelly in his very own big-top circus tent at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens near Penzance this Easter!
Produced by the creators of the much-loved stage adaptation of ‘The Mousehole Cat’ this brand new show is based on the Cornish children’s book, ‘Percy Pengelly and the Wibble Wobble’ by Jenny Steele Scolding and Andy McPherson.
It’s a sad day for Percy Pengelly, the “greatest tightrope walker in the world” has to say goodbye to the circus, but his new life back home in Cornwall is full of surprises including giddy rooftop adventures and an exciting rescue at sea.
Meet Percy Pengelly, Mr Pascoe, Mrs Roskilly, Mrs Trewin and Captain Lugg from 28 March!
