About the Walkabout
From his mobile potting shed table, gardener Hugh Bushey Babcock shares his green fingered secrets and introduces Leia his prize winning, walking, talking psychic leek. With a little audience participation they use her powers of clairvoyance to deduce people’s favourite vegetables, then demonstrate the giant carrot chopper (mind your fingers on the guillotine – they could end up in the soup!) and miraculously raise a drooping rose from almost certain death.
What to expect
Leia the giant stilt Leek accompanies Hugh the gardener with his potting shed table that plays pastoral music. As the table is wheeled about they pause their important gardening duties to perform several short static spots. Drawing a small to medium-sized crowd around them they perform a series of garden-themed magic and mind-reading tricks, much to the delight of audience members young and old.
Hugh is also available with the flirty flowers, Saskia the Sunflower or Daphne the Daffodil in “Big Bloomers”. Click the button below to find out more.
Now available: “The Big Bloomers Gardening Show”, a mini static show that can be combined with this Walkabout Act.
