Madame Zucchini provides a complete package for festivals, fayres and country shows including vegetable theatre, vegetable creature making and courgette/sprout costumed walkabout.
There are different packages to choose from. For instance, the rebel vegetable Leek Skywalker, Darth Tater & Aubergine Wan'kenobi all feature in the Star Wars show, or you can choose the Pirates of the Carrot-bean show starring Cap'n Jack Marrow and Kiwi Knightley.
People love to meet the Courgette Lady (as seen on Britain's got Talent) plus children can make and take away their own vegetable creature.
The combination of craft, performance and walkabout is very good value for events as it provides a range of activities throughout the day, and of course excellent social media and marketing opportunities.
