Lanlocked as we are in leafy Hertfordshire it’s nice to know the sounds of the waves crashing and stories of mermaids and valiant voyages can be transported to our shores with The Sea Show this month.

Squashbox Theatre recounts a mix of tall tales and fantastic facts in this nautical outdoor show. Actor, musician and puppeteer Craig Johnson balances a quirky and hilarious mix of cabaret and natural history lesson to create an engaging adventure for ages five and up.

The Sea Show is playing at The Green Square, Hawthorne Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday, July 21. Details: 01707 357117,
