The Sagas of Noggin the Nog

Thu 12 Feb 2015

In the lands of the North, where the black rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long, the men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale… of Noggin the Nog!

The classic stories by The Clangers and Bagpuss creators Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin, which became one of the most iconic television series of the 1970s, are playfully retold using puppets, original music, film – and a cast of silly Vikings.Fresh from Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this hilarious production is packed with thoroughly English humour, and is perfect for all ages - from those who remember the series from the first time around, through to children and adults discovering Noggin the Nog for the very first time.

Accompanied by the brave and mighty Thor Nogson and the great green bird Graculus, come North with us on a journey of adventure and discovery to battle the fearsome Ice Dragon and thwart Noggin’s dastardly uncle, Nogbad the Bad.

'Utterly charming' **** The Stage

'Lovingly recreated with flair and attention to detail. Impressive puppetry... lovely comic touches... deliciously naughty' **** The Scotsman
