THE GRUFFALO’S CHILD IS BACK IN LONDON FOR CHRISTMAS!

Tall Stories’
THE GRUFFALO’S CHILD
LIVE ON STAGE

The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should
Ever set foot in the deep dark wood. . .

Follow the Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in Tall Stories’ enchanting adaptation of the much-loved picture book by
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious creatures – but the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

Let your imagination run wild with songs, laughs and scary fun for everyone aged 3 to 103.

Running time 55 minutes (no interval)
Tickets £19 Front Stalls, £16 Rear Stalls, £13 Circle
Suitable for ages 3+

Relaxed performances are designed for families and children with additional needs. They are designed to provide an opportunity for people with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who require a more relaxed environment. There may be small changes to the show such as to the lighting and sound. Visual guides to help audience members know what to expect from the performances are available on request. Our Relaxed Performance takes place on Sunday 6th December at 10am.

Open to all, the British Sign Language performances are signed for families and children with hearing impairments. The BSL interpreter is usually integrated into the show and will move around the stage with the performers. Our BSL Performance takes place on Saturday 19th December at 12pm.
