A brand new interactive children’s musical from Golden Toad Theatre, exploring community, imagination and a passion for plants.
"I wish I could have a garden of my own, but all I see out there is concrete and pavement and more concrete..."
Errol loves his tiny flat in the city, but he dreams of having a garden. His father tells him that he needs to find a new place for his plants as they are taking over the flat. Errol and his sister Tia explore the block of flats in search of a suitable space and discover that it has a rooftop! They must bring their neighbours together to help turn the neglected rooftop space into a community garden, all the while dealing with a mysterious neighbour and some destructive snails.
Filled with catchy songs, humour and imagination, Errol’s Garden encourages children to joyfully use their ideas to make a positive impact on their local community through gardening and sustainable living.

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:
- Social history
- Rural crafts
- 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.
Stockwood Discovery Centre is the perfect setting for events, meetings and celebrations. See Venue Hire for more information.
