This little theatre is a must do visit for adults and children. It's magical and you feel you've been transformed to another place and time for 10 minutes. Highly recommended. We are so lucky in Malvern to have such a quirky place for visitors to enjoy.

In the Guinness Book of records, as the smallest theatre in the world. Dennis the owner is well known in Malvern.His theatre seats a max of 10 or so, if I recall correctly.He changes themes according to the season.Our visit was about Christmas and quite entertaining. Well worth the visit, and the cheap entry fee compared to the main theatre... More

Open only in the summer months, this converted public convenience holds the distinction of being the world's smallest theatre putting on short and very surreal animated shows that will delight both adults and children. It's like being inside Terry Gilliam's head! Too mad to miss.

We took our grand-daughter to a puppet show and we were all fascinated, adults and children. Definitely recommend.

Take no notice of the miserable dissenter. This theatre is a joy and we call in every time we visit Malvern. Have just seen this year's Christmas special which was just as good as last year's (and the year before!). It's odd, enchanting and truly unique. Maximum capacity is twelve and it's all over in about 15 minutes -- but... More

Worth walking past if you are here, but certainly not worth coming to Malvern especially to see. It is rarely open and even if you linger five minutes is enough tome. Nice coffee shop just up the road though.

i'm still smiling thinking about this hours later. It's a wonderful and weird experience in the worlds' smallest theatre. The owner/puppeter welcomed us warmly and gave us a potted history then on with the show! I think it's best not too know what to expect but this show titled 'Quakery Codswallop' is a wonderful peice of whimsy for all ages.... More

Everyone should visit this tiny converted public toilet at least once. Particularly good accompanied by children but we were there a month ago, a party of 4 adults, and greatly enjoyed the show. The capacity is probably no more than about 10 people. The show only lasts a few minutes but with the puppets, the music and the sound effects,... More

The theatre of small convenience is the must do attraction for friends who visit us in Malvern. It's an eccentric and frivolous 5 minute diversion from Malvern's more cultured theatres. The current show is Quakery Codswallop - a Python-esque puppet show. The Too Tall Dancer is the highlight of the show - not to be missed. The only problem with... More
