We would have loved to have seen this show but sadly the timing did not work out for us as our accomodation was in the New Town...HOWEVER - 5 stars for the main performer who was dedicated every day in promoting her show -perched high up on a wall by Assembly Gardens looking beautiful! Hope to see one of her shows next time!

A fun show with a great ECO message. We loved the participation with props provided. 6 year old has talked with excitement all day about being the cow
