The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen

October 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm BST

The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Storytale Festival: Bristol Children's Book Festival (second event)

The Event

Three performers take to the stage. They’re expecting the world’s greatest adventurer, Baron Munchausen – but the Baron is nowhere to be found! They’ll just have to lure him out… through the power of storytelling!

Amazing tales elegantly told! Jackanory meets Whose Line Is It Anyway in this multi award-winning family show, where three top comedians are challenged to invent their own ridiculous tall-tales inspired by the Adventures of Baron Munchausen. All they have are their wits, some silly hats and the fantastic imaginations of an audience of giggling children to ensure it all ends happily ever after. There will be pirates and princesses, unicorns and dragons, swordfights and spacemen, and all our stories are completely and irrefutably true!

This fantastically funny, creative and innovative show is suitable for ages 6+ and encourages children to be imaginative, creative and helps boost confidence. Whatever your age, young or old, it’s most definitely fun for all the family!

“A joyous show of wit, sparkle and simple happiness” ***** Broadway Baby

With successful runs of the show at Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022, The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen won ‘Best Children’s Show’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2020, Best Kid’s Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe 2019, and was nominated for an Edinburgh Bobby Award at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022.
