Presented by Stuff & Nonsense

Visit the incredible world of Stuff and Nonsense.

What if you were made of wood? What adventures wood you have?!

Using the classic elements of this tale – a poor woodcarver, the tell-tale growing nose, the dream of becoming a real boy – S&N add their hallmark hilarity, cleverness, puppetry, music, fantastic staging, outstanding performers and extraordinary physical tricks, in their most ambitious production to date.

Three very funny men seek refuge in a grand but abandoned old house, where they gather around an extraordinary dining table that becomes their playground. Grandfather, Father and Son tell tales of growing up; one of them used to be Pinocchio and it turns out he’s had quite a life!...

S&N are leaders in family theatre and Director Niki McCretton has children’s sensibilities in her heart and family connection as her mission.  

Invest in your children’s imaginations, and take playfulness home with you!



FREE Arts & Craft Activity for children and their grown ups

Join us for one of our FREE pre show, drop-in arts and craft ‘Hands on Happenings’ sessions in the Cambridge Junction foyer. These creative activities, led by a professional visual artist are themed to tie in with the family shows that you will be seeing on stage.

Hands on Happenings will be available an hour before the show i.e. 10.30 for 11.30 show. The sessions do get very busy so early arrival is advised.
