The Giant Jam Sandwich

What a to-do!
One hot summer's day, four million wasps invade the quiet village of Itching Down. The picnickers panic and the farmer stops haymaking. The wasps are noisy, nasty and worst of all, they don't mind who they sting! That is until the baker has an ingenious idea...
New Perspectives brings this best-selling picture book back to life on stage. The book, a family favourite for 45 years, is loved by generations and this hit show has already got over  8,000 children and family audiences buzzing nation-wide. Join the villagers in their giant sandwich-making plan to defeat the wasps and help save the day, in a fun-packed feast for 3-7 year olds and their families.
