There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, I don’t know why she swallowed a fly... but The People's Theatre Company do!

And now you can too as they bring one of the world's best loved nursery rhymes to life just in time to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Pam Adams' best selling book.

From the creators of 'Don't Dribble on the Dragon', this magical show has been written especially for grown-ups to enjoy with their children, so come and relive the delights of this most charming of tales complete with a feast of sing-along songs, colourful animal characters and heart-warming family fun.

It's the perfect treat for anyone aged 2 to 102!

The songs in the show – including 'If You're Happy and You know It' and 'Incy Wincy Spider' – are available to sing along with on The People's Theatre Company website, so why not have a listen and join in when you visit the theatre!

The 45th Anniversary production was written by Steven Lee and is directed by Nick Lane.

A great introduction to the theatre with just the right balance of sitting listening and taking part ★★★★★ – Bristol Guide

Thoroughly entertaining and brilliant fun. ★★★★★ - Patricia Goodwin, What's on Stage
