Stay up late with flying cows, jazzy cats and runaway crockery and dance to the music in a new take on the classic nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle, coming to Sheffield city centre theatre and arts centre The Montgomery on August 27.

Ever wondered how a cow jumped over the moon? Or why the dish ran away with the spoon?

With original songs played live on stage, puppetry and lots of laughter, this new show is described as a wild and musical celebration about the importance of imagination.
