Vegetable Nannies

Plunge Boom

Family, Theatre, Walkabout

Meet the Vegetable Nannies and their precious home-grown charges.

The Vegetable Nannies are two everyday gardeners who’ve taken their young vegetables out of the ground for a day trip. If you see an old pram brimming with some beautiful bouncing baby vegetables, come over and say hello. No doubt the Nannies could use a hand in feeding and taking care of the little family that includes Jessica, the Sweet-Potato beauty queen & Babs the down-hill racing Watermelon.

About Plunge Boom

Plunge Boom specialises in imaginative and interactive street theatre for family audiences. The company provides workshops and outreach, event production and consultation services.

Its shows and events are playful, engaging, and extremely hands-on. They actively invite people to roll up their sleeves and get stuck into an inventive range of activities, from whipping up cow pat cakes to rocking a baby marrow off to sleep.

Established in 2006 by actor and writer Ben Faulks (CBeebies’ Mr. Bloom), Plunge Boom today is run by Ben and Mimi Faulks, alongside a steadfast troupe of actors, artists and workshop leaders.

Plunge Bloom love nothing more than bringing super high quality, thoroughly interactive experiences to events in the UK, Europe and beyond.
