Imaginative children's play 'Ogg 'n' Ugg and the World's First Dogg' shows at Northwich's Lion Salt Works Museum on 14 March

On Saturday 14 March at 11am, the award-winning Lion Salt Works Museum in Northwich, Cheshire will show ‘Ogg ‘n’ Ugg and the World’s First Dogg’. This enchanting children’s play tells the story of a time before dogs, when wolves roamed the land and did not like humans. This was before Yorkshire hunter-gatherers Ugg ‘n’ Ogg became friends with wolves and ‘invented’ man’s best friend, the dog. Part of the Cheshire Rural Touring Arts Spring season, tickets to this performance cost £6.50 per adult; £4.50 for under 16-year olds and family tickets* are available. The play is aimed at children over three years old but is fun for any age group. Bookings can be made by calling 01606 275066 or for a small booking fee online at Ticketsource.

This fun show produced by Theatre Fidera Fidera features flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling sticks, rapping wolves and forest infernos. Inspired by the amazing evolutionary process where over thousands of years hunter-gatherers transformed the wolf into a perfect pet through domestication and selection, this action-packed fun play contains lots of hilarious twists and turns before man can finally pat their dog.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “This engaging and energetic play is a wonderful mix of song, puppetry and fun and will delight children and adults alike. I hope as many people as possible make it along to the historic Thompson Suite for this performance.” 

The play runs for an hour without an interval and includes a ten minute ‘meet the performers and puppets session.

The Lion Salt Works Museum tells the story of salt through fun, interactive displays, a theatrical lighting, sound and film experience and a walk-in ‘subsiding house’. There is no charge to visit the bespoke play area, butterfly garden, café or shop.
