So, if you see an old pram brimming with some beautiful bouncing baby fruits and vegetables, come over and say hello. No doubt the nannies could use a hand with feeding and taking care of all their adorable babes. Endearing characters include Jessica the Sweet-Potato beauty queen, Oz the talented little marrow who dreams of becoming a stage actor, and Babs the daring downhill-racing Watermelon.

Plunge Boom specialise in imaginative and interactive street theatre for family audiences. Established in 2006 by actor and writer Ben Faulks (CBeebies’ Mr. Bloom), Plunge Boom love nothing more than bringing unique, interactive experiences to events in the UK, Europe and beyond.
