Back for its third year, cult hit Frome - The Fecund Coming is Rare Species' comic take on traditional historical walks.

Join 'whistorians' Virginia Saggers & Gerald Terd as they take you up the Via Delorosa and uncover some of the truths behind the town's burgeoning success.

What lies beneath Frome's cobbled streets and why has it become such a popular location for hipsters and artisans to settle?

Peppered with humorous observations, cultural references, stories, poetry and song this 50 minute tour reaches the parts other tours cannot reach.

Fecund the Second - the sequel is to debut in July during the Frome Festival, so catch part one while you can.

"Rare Species are skilled and sharp performers, adept at improvising comedy from any haphazard thing that happens on the way, before returning to the hilarious script. For incessant and imaginative laughs Frome - The Fecund Coming can't be beat" John Christopher Wood

"A brilliant piece of immersive street theatre with unforgettable highlights" - Crysse Morrison
