The Last Baguette theatre company are bringing their riotous and ridiculous outdoor family theatre show Pandora’s Box to venues around Wiltshire and the Southwest this summer.
Written by Sunday Times award-winning playwright Tiff Woodsmith, Pandora’s Box is a gallop through Greek mythology featuring goofy gods, hilarious heroines & daft deities. Expect a plethora of costume changes, a pantheon of Gods and a prohibited peek into a pithos, as The Last Baguette retell the preposterous and problematic story of Pandora.
Bring a blanket and some cushions and enjoy some high quality silliness. A show for anyone aged 6 to 126 who’s ever asked why.
The Last Baguette make entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and are company-in-residence at Pound Arts, Corsham.

The company are also leading a free Carnival Arts Workshop in partnership with Malmesbury Carnival. Children & adults are invited to have fun creating Carnival sculptures for the procession based on the theme of Our Forest World.
“Everyone is welcome” says Sidney Robb, workshop leader. “Get creative using recycled materials and willow withies to make sculptures big and small for Malmesbury Carnival Procession.”
“I grew up in Malmesbury and have always loved the Carnival, and am passionate getting people involved” continues Sidney. “This is the second year of the Carnival Arts Project. This year it’s going to be even bigger & more spectacular and we are delighted to be working with Fruitful Malmesbury again!”
This is part of The Last Baguette’s outreach programme, which includes workshops for early years, children and teenagers, and has been kindly supported by Malmesbury Local Youth Network, the Jack Lane Charitable Trust, the Dyson Foundation, Malmesbury Area Community Trust and Malmesbury Carnival.
