Poor Dame Trot and her son Jack hardly have a bean to their name, and to make things worse the village is being terrorised by a wicked giant.

Trot sends her son to market to sell Buttercup the Cow and he comes home with nothing but a handful of beans. That’s when the magic really begins.

Join Jack on his climb up the beanstalk to an enchanted land of excitement and adventure, where he must rescue his family from the ‘Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum’ of a very hungry giant.
