Meet Belladonna, the beautiful but deadly gardener, as she tries to catch a tasty morsel for her hungry Venus Flytraps.

Is your hand steady enough that you dare to feed the Flytrap Puppets yourself? Or will you help Aristotle the batty bluebottle to escape from their deadly clutches? Watch out that you don’t get sucked in by her charm too, as she entices the foolish fly towards his sweet, toothy decline.

Also available as:

Belladonna the Witch

Here comes Belladonna the Witch in her lean green Venus Flytrap machine with her pet fly Aristotle the batty Bluebottle. You can meet his cute baby maggots and try on “fly-vision” glasses or are you brave enough to feed the fiendish flytraps yourself?!

‘Belladonna… was a fantastically colourful walkabout pitched perfectly for all ages. I had lots of good feedback and you worked relentlessly throughout terrible weather!’

‘I was extremely impressed with Bell & Bullock. The ‘Belladonna and her Venus Flytraps’ show was fantastic and very well organised. They worked really well with our visitors both children and adults – their costumes and props were brilliant and very professional. They worked above and beyond what was expected. I would not hesitate to book them again.’
