Fideri Fidera presents

Fun-loving Oskar has to run down a mountain to find a friendly animal to play with. But where are the animals? And why does Oskar have to wait till spring to play his favourite game again?

A heartwarming and entertaining play for young children and their families, full of good humour, adventure, music and song. This original play uses a rich mix of storytelling, physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, music and song to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the wilderness of the Alps.

The performances will be followed by a 10 minute playtime, where the children can meet the performer and play with the animal puppets from the play.

Age guidance: 2 – 8 years

Reviews

“The energy and enthusiasm of the performer was staggering! She played many different parts with great results. The set was simple but effective with changing seasons and characters. The songs were catchy and fun. My two children (aged 3 and 5) really enjoyed it.” Primary Times

“Actor Natasha Granger enchants the audience as the storyteller, using song, puppetry, music, and physical comedy to brilliantly tell Oskar’s tale. Her energy is boundless and captivates even the youngest of children. The handmade sets and puppets have an Etsy-like appeal which perfectly suits the fairy tale vibe of the show.” Familiesonline

The display collections include:

  • Geology
  • Archaeology
  • Social history
  • Rural crafts

Highlights include:

  • The Wenlok Jug - a rare medieval masterpiece with strong links to Luton’s history 
  • Luton's last tram

A paradise for garden enthusiasts, Stockwood Discovery Centre is one of the few places in the country where the work of acclaimed artist Ian Hamilton Finlay can be seen on permanent display. His Improvement Garden is a classical garden in which the sculptures are an integral part of the landscape. Once part of the original Stockwood House walled areas, the Period Gardens reflect the changing styles of gardening in this country. New areas include a contemplative Sensory Garden, a colourful World Garden and a Medicinal Garden highlighting the usefulness of plants - designed with environmentally green and sustainable principles in mind.
