Presented by Tall Stories

Following hot on the heels of The Gruffalo’s sell out tour and his monstrous West End success comes The Gruffalo’s Child - with attitude!

Just how brave is she? Find out for yourselves by joining her on tour this autumn.

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

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

Tall Stories returns, bringing Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning sequel to life in this magical, musical adaptation.

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups.


RELAXED PERFORMANCE: Tuesday’s 4.30pm performance will be relaxed performance.  Relaxed performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.  Read Ambitious About Autism’s interview with Tall Stories.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
