Madame Zucchini provides a year round seasonally adjusted service for festivals, fayres, country shows, market events with appropriate vegetable theatre shows, vegetable creature making activities, plus her Courgette for Spring, Summer & Autumn events, and now her Sparkly Sprout costumed walkabout for Winter (yes it lights up as twilight descends!)

There are different packages to choose from. For instance, seasonal themes like Hallowe’en are catered for with Harry Potato and the Swede of Doom as well as veg monster making, and a delightful tale about Sally the flatulent Sprout for Winter/Christmas events.

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 or indeed veg jewellery. You can choose walkabout only packages, and workshop sessions without shows too if that suits your budget.

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. 

Madame Zucchini is an experienced performer & event professional of some ten years, who has worked at market events, food and other festivals, including Sunderland Food and Drink Festival, Out of this World in Sheffield, Kelham Island Museum, Asparafest, Droitwich food festival, Newark Royal Market, Garstang Show, the Bakewell Show (where she had a performance area in the horticulture tent) along with the RHS Chelsea Flower show, Sandringham Flower Show where she has been a feature for a few years now, & many more.
