Chester Tuffnut

GOMITO THEATRE AND POLKA THEATRE PRESENT Chester TuffnutGomito Theatre and Polka Theatre present Chester Tuffnut. Chester Tuffnut isn’t an ordinary treemole, Chester likes wearing jumpers and sitting in his armchair, but most of all he loves adventure!
The curious creatures in Woodland have gone so long without excitement, they’ve forgotten how to have fun. Luckily, Chester is on hand to bring happiness and laughter back to his new Woodland friends.

Told with puppets, original music and imaginative antics, this show is full of humour, thrills, spills, near misses and great escapes. This is a story about discovering new places and making friends, while encouraging everyone to have at least one adventure a day.

You can have your very own adventure with the chance to stay, meet the Woodland creatures and explore their dens after the show.

Chester Tuffnut/Ages 2+/ Saturday 11 March, 1pm & 3pm./£7 -£24 Family Ticket / Booking line: 020 8692 4446






About Gomito Theatre

Gomito is a collaboration of artists making new visual theatre. The company is an ever-changing family of performers, designers, directors, musicians and writers who want to share stories in a certain way; with creativity, entertainment, humour, emotion, liveness and homespun roughness; with theatricality at its simplest.

Gomito makes theatre for everyone who enjoys a good story told with all of the above. Sometimes we investigate a subject which might be best suited to adults, sometimes we try to make things with children at the front of our minds, but often we combine both. Our dream is to make theatre which is understood on the same level by young and old, which doesn’t appeal to exclusively to intellect or a certain aged brain, but which binds an audience together and reminds us of what we share as humans.

Gomito was formed in 2001 in Cambridge which we will always think of as our home. Since then Gomito shows have toured across the UK earning the company an excellent reputation as makers of creative, surprising, universal theatre. From 2009 to 2011 Gomito were Associate Artists of The Junction in Cambridge and in 2011 the company became the first ever Associate Artists of Greenwich Theatre. We now split our time between Cambridge and Greenwich.

Due to the nature of the performance space, latecomers will not be admitted to performances after the advertised start time. Please ensure you arrive at the venue at least 10 minutes prior to performance start time. Re-admittance to performances will not always be possible, and is at the discretion of Canada Water Culture Space staff.

Canada Water Culture Space, an intimate 150 seat theatre showcasing the best in new work, comedy, contemporary theatre, dance and music. Located on the ground floor of the Canada Water Library, the Culture Space is programmed by the Albany in partnership with Southwark Council.  @CWCultureSpace  Canada-Water-Culture-Space
