Meet the Extraordinary Cast of Dragons and Mythical Beasts

Calling all brave heroes! Enter into a magical world of myths and legends this June with the award-winning family show Dragons and Mythical Beasts. Direct from a major tour of the USA, Dragons and Mythical Beasts will be landing in Taunton from 23-25 June 2023.

From the creators of the West End smash hits Dinosaur World Live and The Tiger Who Came To Tea, this spellbinding adventure brings mythical creatures to life using spectacular puppetry.

Come face to face with some of the most fantastical creatures and terrifying beasts ever to walk the earth. Meet the colossal Stone Troll, the mysterious Indrik and Japanese Baku; the Tooth Fairy (not as sweet as you’d think), an adorable Unicorn, and A majestic Griffin. Take your place among legendary heroes, just don’t wake the Dragon…
