From 1972 to 2016 - The Smallest Theatre in the World is still motorbikes and madness above all else! Built in 1972 by the comic genius Marcel Steiner it has had a long and lusterous life and has recently found itself in the capable hands of The Grand Theatre of Lemmings. For the last 3 years, the Lemmings have taken the tiny magical theatre all over the world with their acclaimed production of King Kong, from the Needles you cannot thread (Isle of Wight) to the fresh-fished city of Hamburg. Oh, and all the way to India too!
'The company are brilliant at engaging new audiences; they delight, they entertain, perform their hearts out and bring a huge smile to the faces of everyone who encounters them.' Head of Royal Opera House, Thames Gateway.
'A stunning performance by The Grand Theatre of Lemmings.'The New Indian Express

We're already getting plenty of bookings for the summer and with Moorecombe Variety Festival and Waddersdon Manor Feast already confirmed, we're getting very excited!
