Tall Stories (The Gruffalo and Gruffalo’s Child shows) are back, following their sell-out performances last year, presenting another opportunity to enjoy this wonderful collaboration with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

A tiny snail longs to see the world, so she hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. But when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? Follow the snail’s amazing journey, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father. Be prepared for great storytelling, live music and lots of laughs!
