1806. It was cold. It was dark. It was almost certainly snowing… Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and their beloved sister, Lotte travel into deepest Bavaria. They are assembling what will become the greatest collection of fairy tales ever published.
But now reality and fantasy are colliding and the family Grimm find themselves trapped in a twisted fantasy world of their own fairy tales. Are the hapless heroes in grave danger? Yes. From what? We can’t tell you. Will they make it back alive? We hope so.
Having previously thrilled audiences with hit shows Is That A Bolt In Your Neck? and You Don’t Need To Know That!, Gonzo Moose are back with a comedy fairy tale adventure bursting with physical comedy, absurd jokes and magical illusion.
Featuring special guest appearances from Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Tom Thumb, Little Red Riding Hood and Rumplestiltskin… subject to their availability.
There will be a post show talk after the matinee on Saturday 10th December.
Christmas is about feasting and you can start in the cafe with Hansel and Gretel gingerbread folk along with lots of other show character snacks!
Check out the reviews…
“No opportunity for laughs of all kinds is wasted: not a second passes without a gag, verbal or visual, blatant or sly. This is seriously talented comic inventiveness, and pure joy from start to finish. Do not miss any chance to see it. “(John Christopher Wood – Venue)
We are giving away a family ticket (worth £20) to see Grimm and Grimmer at the Pegasus Theatre. This competition has ended.

From 26 November 2011 the Ashmolean welcomes visitors to the new galleries of Ancient Egypt and Nubia (present-day Sudan). Following the success of the Museum’s new building which opened in 2009, this second phase of major redevelopment will redisplay the world-renowned Egyptian collections and exhibit objects that have been in storage for decades, more than doubling the number of mummies and coffins on display. The new galleries will take visitors on a chronological journey covering more than 5000 years of human occupation of the Nile Valley.
This historic £5 million project has received lead support from Lord Sainsbury’s Linbury Trust, along with the Selz Foundation and other trusts, foundations and individuals. Designed by Rick Mather Architects, the new galleries will show the collections under the broad themes: Egypt at its Origins; Dynastic Egypt and Nubia; Life after Death in Ancient Egypt; The Amarna ‘Revolution’; Egypt in the Age of Empires; and Egypt meets Greece and Rome.
The Ashmolean is home to some of the finest Egyptian collections in the world, with Predynastic and Protodynastic material unrivalled outside Cairo. With new lighting, showcases, and state-of-the-art facilities, the project will complete the Museum’s new Ancient World Floor spanning the world’s great ancient civilisations from Egypt and Nubia, the Near East, Greece and Rome, to India, China and Japan.
