Next Youth Event


Cartoon pig smiling happilyBabe, The Sheep-Pig, by David Wood

8 – 11 December 2021

When Babe is won by Farmer Hogget at the village fair an extraordinary friendship develops, one that will change the whole farm. With the help of his new “mother” (Fly, the old sheepdog), Babe fast learns the herding instinct, and it’s not long before this most polite of pigs wins over the most suspicious of sheep.

When the day of the Grand Challenge Sheepdog Trials dawns, the whole farm holds its breath to see whether Babe will triumph, against all odds, to become the hero of the hour.

This joint Youth/Adult show is the tale of high adventure in the farmyard that became a hit movie. Based on the novel by Dick King-Smith.
