Quentin Blake's Mrs Armitage on Wheels

Saturday 3 Aug 2024

Tags: Family and Children's

If you could change anything on your bicycle, what would it be? A comfy new saddle? An ice cream maker? Rocket boosters?!  

When Mrs Armitage goes out for a ride with her trusty dog Breakspear, she decides her bicycle needs improvement. With a new horn, a picnic hamper…and a sail, will Mrs Armitage manage to keep her bicycle in one piece or will her crazy contraption prove too much to handle? 

Adapted from Quentin Blake’s classic tale, Scoot Theatre present a 40-minute interactive, energetic show, celebrating the joy of getting outdoors and being active. Featuring live music, puppetry and physical comedy, we celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of resilience. 

Suitable for aged 3+  

Co-produced with Farnham Maltings, with additional support from Arts Partnership Surrey. 


‘One of the best evening's entertainment I can remember.’ audience member on Brilliance, Farnham Maltings (2018)

‘We can safely say that Scoot will surprise you... we’re completely converted by their accessible adaptations which are unpretentious, silly fun.' The Family Stage on Scoot Theatre

‘I’ve never met a child who didn’t love Quentin Blake.’ Melanie McDonagh, Daily Telegraph
