Presented by Tall Stories

Join a tiny snail on her trip round the world in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the fantastic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Lift wanted around the world…

Longing to see the world, a tiny snail hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing adventure – but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? Follow the tiny snail’s exciting journey, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father…

Storytelling, live music and lots of laughs, in a show for everyone aged 4 and up.

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.
