Peerifool DVD

Watch Trailer

View Slideshow


This fabulous tale was collected from an old Orkney woman by anthropologist, Mr DJ Robertson, in the nineteenth century. It's a magnificent story for girls; the hilarious porridge fairies are totally bewitching!

Filmed in the atmospheric locations of the Dartmoor National Park and picturesque Bickleigh Castle, Peerifool evokes a world of old fashioned story-telling in the rich tradition of our national heritage.

Suitability: The ogre could be scary for very young or sensitive children, so do please check out the trailer just to be sure.

The DVD is in PAL format. Our American friends will need a multi-region DVD player or a computer to play it.

£10.00 UK sales including postage. £12.00 for anywhere else in the world.

"We had a lovely screening of Peerifool to an audience of small girls (mostly!) and their mums (mostly!) who all thoroughly enjoyed the film. It was a most attractive addition to the programme"
