For many, many years, the pretty Derbyshire town of Belper has been terrorised by a terrifying Beast! It has stalked the hills and villages for generations. It has worried sheep, spilled pints and run amok at farmers' markets. Many have tried to rid the town of this accursed monster but none have succeeded.

So famous big-game hunter, Lady Flossie Chumbly-Wynn-Bagg and renowned gentleman naturalist, Professor Percival Pollock joined forces to capture the Beast and save the town once and for all. But are they a match for the wily Beast and her tribe of ferocious Little Beasts!

'It was really entertaining for everyone, funny, bright and playful.'
'How wonderful it was to have a quality theatrical experience on our doorstep.'
