As the sun comes up on a new day, the garden wakes up! Join us for a gentle first theatre experience, perfect for the very young.


Join us in the mud to explore the world of growing plants, busy bugs and wriggling worms. Share the music, singing and story and play amongst the plants with this shared experience for you and your baby!


For just fifteen babies per performance with their accompanying parent/carer, this shared experience for you and your baby lasts 30 minutes, encouraging the use of props, rhythms, music and simple puppetry. You'll sit within a garden and meet the puppet mini bugs, bird and butterflies, see the sun rise and set and experience the different weather over a day in the life of a garden.


Featuring set and puppets from Nick Ash of ScratchBuilt Productions, co-creator of 2019 winter’s shows Hansel and Gretel and The Magical Christmas Toy Shop.

Stockwood Discovery Centre

Stockwood Discovery Centre tells the stories of real people behind the collections, exploring the history of the region from prehistoric times to the evolution of Stockwood House and the Farley estate.

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
  • The award winning display of Mossman collection of carriages - the largest collection of its kind on display in the UK.

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.
