An extraordinary adventure about water, dripping with fun!


Maya LOVES water! Swimming in the sea, splashing in her paddling pool. But one summer’s day, she gets sucked up the bathroom tap - SQUOOSH! - and along the water pipes! WHOOAAHHHH!


Arriving in a strange new land, Maya goes on an exciting journey, plunging into rivers, discovering oceans, battling unexpected villains! And you get to join in, making the show’s soundtrack with live beatboxing and watery sound effects! Watch out for the water pistol fight - don’t get squirted!


Come with Maya as she finds out more about the beauty, fun and challenges of water in an age of plastic and climate change. Gulp! is a moving, magical story dripping with fun, unexpected twists and turns, and watery surprises about how to care for the world and its precious resources.


Age Guidance: 7+ (Accessible to d/Deaf, hearing and non-English speaking audiences)
Running Time: 55 minutes (no interval)

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.
