Bring your schoolchildren (ages 4-8 years) to this magical Christmas show, as we take you out to sea to meet a little whale…

Benji Davies’ tender and heart-warming stories of loneliness, love and courage are brought to life as one magical piece of theatre. Based on the award-winning books The Storm Whale and The Storm Whale in Winter.

This story follows Noi, who rescues and befriends a little whale washed up on the beach. Next winter, Noi waits and longs to see his friend again. Will it take another storm to bring them back together?

Presented and produced by fantastic children’s theatre creators, Engine House, York Theatre Royal, Little Angel Theatre and The Marlowe, this is the perfect seasonal treat for children aged 4-8!

Tickets cost £8.50 per child, with one free teacher/guardian ticket for every nine purchased*.
