One dark winter’s night, young Rosie dreams of carving a lantern from a turnip, for a special Festival of Light in her village.

First she must plant a seed, and wait patiently for her turnip to grow. When it’s harvest time at last, Cow, Goat, Fox and Duck are keen to help Rosie pull up the enormous turnip, but the question is…. can they do it in time for the festival?

Finally, after heaps of heaving, tons of tugging and generally getting rather out of breath, Rosie learns of a magical secret hidden deep below the earth that will help her to achieve her enormous turnip dream.

One Moment In Time presents their own version of this classic folk tale, with a magical twist. Featuring beautifully hand-crafted puppets and sets, storytelling, live music, songs and lots of joining in!

“Magical! Wonderful storytelling and the live music and audience participation topped it off beautifully. I brought 3 children age between 3-9 and they were all totally engaged” – Adult audience member, Little Angel Theatre

“I loved it all. The duck was very funny! The root gnome was my favourite” – Audience member, Little Angel Theatre age 5

“I loved Rosie! I loved the show”- Audience member, Little Angel Theatre age 8
