The ever popular “Piggery Jokery” is a whimsical perambulation through the seasons, touching on the circular nature of time, as told by the Green Man and his hurdy-gurdy playing Droning Crone and their troupe of rag-bag characters. There is plenty of laughter along the way as the old farmer tends his land and fattens his pig for the winter. Suitable for all ages from little acorns to old oaks.

It is both moving and entertaining with resonances of ancient pagan ritual and dark humour. It is suitable for a wide range of events, and has been performed in the UK and abroad at Medieval Fayres, Ecology Festivals, Woodland events, and Storytelling session, as well as Craft Fayres, Farmers’ Markets, Folk Festivals, and around the tree at Christmas… The show lasts about half an hour, and is ideal for a mixed audience of all ages, but not an exclusively children’s audience.
