Asha + The Troll

Matipo Arts

Back in the olden times, when children could do as they pleased, there was a house, on the edge of the forest…

Asha + The Troll is a theatre performance for 5-8 year olds in which storytellers unfold a world of forests, friendship, puppetry, percussion, and… trolls! Follow Asha as she meets an unlikely friend and learns to love their differences.

Sunday 23 June, 12.00 – 12.30pm
Venue: Cressing Temple Barns, Witham Road, Braintree, Cressing, CM77 8PD
Tickets: Free, booking essential
Box Office: tickettailor.com


Matipo Arts will also be holding a Storytelling Performance Workshop later in the day, giving participants a chance to create their own story and explore elements from the show.

Part of our Midsummer Madness Family Fun Day. Pack your picnic and make a beeline for what promises to be a magical day at Cressing Temple Barns. Free parking, free entry and lots of free activities. All welcome.

All those aged under 12 must be accompanied by an adult
