Spoof of Enid Blyton’s famous adventure book series The Secret Seven. Join this unruly bunch of intrepid explorers as they solve the most puzzling mystery their secret society has ever seen. There will be intrigue, danger and lashings of ginger beer in this high-energy, nostalgic, tongue-in-cheek comedy. Will they ever discover what was in the old man’s mysterious sack? Can they fight off the beastly competition from the Famous Five? Why do Barbara’s rock buns keep getting bigger? Is anyone going to ask them why, for a children’s society, they all look suspiciously adult?

Review for Tally ho the secret several.
If you remember Enid Blyton you will love this parody! It’s full of energy and fun with loads of laughs! The actors are superb and the mystery of the missing gnomes will have you laughing all the way through. Definitely a five star performance!

Very funny great atmosphere, actors where brilliantly lively and presented their hilariously odd characters with perfect comedy timing. If you’ve ever read any Enid Blyton this show takes a refreshing spin on some loved characters, taking you on a fun mystery to find the gnome stealing fiend.
Would recommend to all ages, well worth a watch!

Bit loud and full on for us . Maybe we are getting old . I think the venue was a bit too small . Might do better in a bigger venue . Its ok if you would like a bit of fun . Not the polished performance of some of the other shows we have seen at the Fringe , but i think it was designed to be like that . Fast paced . Would maybe appeal to a younger audiences . Not our cup of tea sadly, but it enhances the ethos of the Fringe that anyone can have a go at performing and inclusion is what really matters after all. The people taking part in the play certainly seemed to enjoy themselves . That did shine through in their performance.

The production was brilliantly acted and a lot of fun bundled into 50 minutes, with the cast expertly portraying the childish innocence and joy of the secret several!

This was a really fun show. We laughed a lot.

I assume it is literally a documentary about growing up as an English person. Even now.

Tally ho!
