Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales

Part of Easter

Under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's terrific tales are retold with music and puppetry.

Meet a whole host of colourful characters from best-loved titles including Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze.

In a show from the team behind Zog and Tabby McTat, funky moves, toe-tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed!

Is Tiddler telling the truth?
Will Monkey find his Mummy?
Will George The Giant make lots of friends?
Can the old lady really squash and squeeze all those animals in?

A delight from start to finish. A room of children laughing hysterically, all totally mesmerised by the action
