Dotty The Dragon

She lives at the top of a mountain with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon.

In the village below, everyone fears for their lives, for dragon’s eat children. Or so they believe. But Dotty would never eat children. Not ever...

One day, she decides to pay the village folk a surprise visit. After all, everyone loves surprises, don’t they?

Blunderbus is presenting this enchanting fairytale adventure with a very happy ending. Dotty The Dragon comes to life at The Capitol, Horsham, on Saturday, February 8, with an irresistible blend of live music, fabulous puppets and high energy storytelling.

Little people (aged three to seven) will love this funny, heartwarming tale. But big people should have lots of fun too.
