‘Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me. I'm the Gingerbread Man.’

Gingie has been running his whole life. But when the evil venture-capitalist Mrs Badbury and the jaded Milky Bar Kid combine forces to convert Quality Street from a halcyon glade of flavour equality to a mass-producing, soul-destroying factory, Gingie must finally stop and bite back.

Will Gingie learn the value of friendship and tolerance to form an assorted mix of intrepid baked goodies? Will they be able to stop the baddie’s plan to turn the moon into a crème egg for profit? Will Flake finally decide to show up? Does anybody actually like Bounty?

Join us in a kooky cookie, topsy-turvy, curly-wurly story across the cosmos: it’s going to be finger-lickin’ good and ginger kicking food. Featuring the crème de la crème of Cambridge talent and choc-a-bloc with gooey goodness, ‘The Gingerbread Man’ is a treat for all the family.
