Head to the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton this summer for Amazing Animal adventures!

Outside the Theatre on every Thursday throughout August are free (donations welcome!) family shows and workshops, where kids will learn more about our Amazing Animals!

The Bewonderment Machine
The Bewonderment Machine is an artist-built, cycle-powered carousel, a kinetic public sculpture and magical journey for small children.

This quirky dreamscape combines puppetry, machinery, hand-carved wooden animals and music. With riding space for up to 10 children, it’s also a miniature theatrical flight of the imagination, empowering the very young to care, to be curious and to believe in their own strength.

​Inspired by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris’ beautiful book The Lost Words, The Bewonderment Machine is a joyful call to re-wild our imaginations, and a celebration of the creatures that are increasingly losing their familiar place in our children’s lives and in their language.

There are three performances on the day: 11.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm, and each performance lasts around 45 minutes.
