Florence and Watson travel abroad!!

For all those who have friends and family in the UK, this is one show you need to tell them about!!

 

Head to the BUK Posterrighton Fringe Festival and see the Florence and Watson show performed by the hilarious Rob Van Vuuren and his amazing wife Danielle Bischoff.

 

For those missing home, this is the ultimate show-the journey of a tiny mouse (Petal) who is alone and misunderstood. She works hard to fit in and impress others, but in the end she becomes a hero by simply being herself.
