An outdoor family show set against the beautiful backdrop of Exeter Quay.

Award winning, Exeter based, PaddleBoat Theatre Company and Quay words present RUSTLE an interactive outdoor family show, jam-packed with puppets, songs and outdoor surprises.

Imagine that you're far from home,
Playing in the woods all on your own
And all is still and calm and clear –
But what's that rustle you can hear?

Three young explorers are setting up camp in the great outdoors to tell the greatest campfire story ever told: where sleeping bags become monsters, torches illuminate the forest's darkest secrets and unlikely friendships are made.

Rustle will be a relaxed performance and include sign-supported English throughout. This performance will take place in the Transit Shed on Exeter Quay.

PLEASE NOTE: This performance is free but as we continue to monitor changing Covid-19 guidance places are restricted. We ask that you book to secure your seat. A limited number of individual and group tickets are available for this performance. Group tickets seat up to 6 people, after you have selected this ticket type, you will be asked to specify how many people are in your group. You will be able to select an amount of people between 2 and 6. This allows us to seat as many people as we can in line with social-distancing guidelines.
