From the makers of Oskar's Amazing Adventure, Fideri Fidera return to Stockwood Discovery Centre with their delightful new canine show for families.


A very long time ago there were no dogs — there were wolves, but we didn’t like them and they didn’t like us. But then along came Ugg ’n’ Ogg to pall up with the wolves, invent our best friend, and save us all from a life of doglessness!


Join our two intrepid Yorkshire hunter-gatherers as they pal up with their mortal enemies the wolves, and despite flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling sticks, and forest infernos, finally get to pat the world’s first Dogg.


Using their characteristic rich theatrical mix of physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, story-telling, and music and song, Ugg ’n’ Ugg and the World’s first Dogg is Theatre Fideri Fidera’s comic take on the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into all the dogs we see in the world today.


Age Guidance: 3+ and their families

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.
