Les Enfants Terribles tour with their exciting brand new outdoor show, The Fantastical Flying Exploratory Laboratory, a stand-alone ‘side-quel’ to Les Enfants Terribles’ hugely successful The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie.


The show follows Dr Latitude and her team of misguided misfits on a global quest, discovering incredible and entirely “fictitious” new lands, tribes, flora and fauna previously unknown to humankind and recounting their exciting adventures!


Dr Latitude’s stories are brought to life using a ‘hot air balloon flying machine’ that soars above our heads in spectacular fashion.


With original music, huge puppets, aerial skills and circus comedy; come and be enthralled by tales of wit, honour, courage and a tiny bit of showboating!
