The Guardian


Dotty is a baby fire dragon.


Dotty is a baby Fire Dragon. She lives in a dusty old castle with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon. She

loves to watch the children playing in the village below, and wishes she could play with them, too!


One day Dotty has a brilliant idea - she will fly down to the village and say hello! After all, everybody loves surprises, don’t they? But will Dotty make new friends, or will the village

folk chase her back home again?

About the show

Brought to life by acclaimed Blunderbus Theatre, this

big-hearted tale of true friendship is told with magical songs, enchanting

music and exquisite puppetry.


Performed in a host of open-air settings, this fantastic outdoor show is full of charm. There are plenty of laughs, lots of surprises and even a life-sized fire breathing dragon! Little people aged 3+ will love this funny, heartwarming tale. But, big people will have lots of fun, too. You can’t help but fall in love with Dotty the Dragon.


This is an open-air performance with limited wet weather cover and no seating provided, so please bring your own low-backed seating or picnic rugs. We will perform whatever the weather, so check the weather report on the day of the show so you know what to wear!  Sadly, we are unable to offer refunds. Don't forget to arrive early to bag the best spot, and if this is your first visit to see a Blunderbus outdoor show, remember the following:


  • Join in and have lots of fun!

  • We'll perform, whatever the weather

  • Bring a picnic, a blanket and/or low-backed seats

  • Save a sandwich for our poor, starving actors

  • If you're late, the actors may include you in the show!


The show lasts for 90 minutes, but there will also be a 20

minute interval about halfway through. After the show, there

will be a chance to meet Dotty the Dragon, say goodbye and

have your photo taken with characters from the show.  






If you're looking for a perfect family treat for the

summer holidays, then look no further! This is our

5th year of touring to outdoor venues from castles
