For the last few years, whenever I visit Malvern, I find myself drawn to this place. What used to be a Victorian men's lavatory is now the smallest theatre in the UK, founded by Dennis Neale, a dramatist and puppeteer whose passion for performance shines from every nook and cranny of this little gem. For less than the price of... More

One of the great British eccentrics. Unique in so many ways. If you're a visitor to Malvern at the weekend or school holidays put this on your agenda - it won't take long and you won't forget it.

Called in with little ones during half term, came out absolutely enchanted. Wonderfully charming puppet show in gorgeous tiny theatre. Held the attention of the children for duration of the short show and allowed them the freedom to explore the den like theatre and engage with the props and musical instruments afterwards. Absolutely wonderful, highly recommended.

You will find nothing like this anywhere else. Totally enchanting shows, only a few minutes long, but the memories will linger on.

A beautiful experience which should not be missed. It's something unlike anything else /unique/ which must be enjoyed for what it is. The brains behind it is a wonderful character who has created a wonderful and inspiring English theatre.

tempting, tiny little shows performed 'on demand', do not miss if you are in and around Malvern. Just beautiful and would engage and enchant anyone of any age or disposition. Truly a little piece of eccentric, wonderfully artful theatre
