Ranked #10 of 21 things to do in Malvern
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 November 2013

i'm still smiling thinking about this hours later. It's a wonderful and weird experience in the worlds' smallest theatre.
The owner/puppeter welcomed us warmly and gave us a potted history then on with the show!

I think it's best not too know what to expect but this show titled 'Quakery Codswallop' is a wonderful peice of whimsy for all ages. It's only 5 mins long but the smiles will last much longer.
A must do.

Everyone should visit this tiny converted public toilet at least once. Particularly good accompanied by children but we were there a month ago, a party of 4 adults, and greatly enjoyed the show. The capacity is probably no more than about 10 people. The show only lasts a few minutes but with the puppets, the music and the sound effects, the tiny stage setting is entrancing.

The theatre of small convenience is the must do attraction for friends who visit us in Malvern. It's an eccentric and frivolous 5 minute diversion from Malvern's more cultured theatres. The current show is Quakery Codswallop - a Python-esque puppet show. The Too Tall Dancer is the highlight of the show - not to be missed. The only problem with the TOSC is that it tends to be open only on Saturdays. We wish we could take friends on a Sunday or book a performance in advance.

We took our 3 year old grand-daughter to this today and she was thrilled - we all admired the paintings and frescos in this tiny theatre, and the small people strummed the piano wires after the show. Also the adults enjoyed the short but unique show, strange but unmissable!
