The Last Baguette theatre company makes entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and is one of the resident artists at Pound Arts, Corsham. The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools. We are proud to work with our Paris-based sister association Malafesta to bring European artists to the UK and have toured the UK and France with 5 shows.
Touring outdoors summer 2021:
King Arthur A fun & farcical family adventure
Somewhere in England, a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. So long ago that nobody quite knows whether it happened or not. Or where it happened or not. A boy pulled a sword from a stone and became King. A story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist and magic.

Our Planet's Voice An environmental performance project with 4 local primary schools
We are delighted to be collaborating with Fruitful Malmesbury and film-maker Fred Goudie on an exciting and thought provoking theatre project about the environment - Our Planet's Voice. Students are creating a short film about the environment and our place in it over 6 weekly sessions from April to May 2021. Four schools in the Malmesbury area are taking part and the filmed performances from each school will be put together to make one big film!
