The Gruffalo

Our new favourite festive family tradition, The Gruffalo, will be brought to life this Christmas season here in East London! Following a monstrous West End success, Tall Stories’ smash hit version of the much loved Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler picture book will be performed for audiences at the Stratford Circus Arts Centre!

A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood… Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo –is there?

Made all the better for knowing most of the words, having developed our own voices for the mouse, the fox, the owl, the snake and of course the Gruffalo as we tuck our children up for bedtime. This spectacularly silly live version of a modern classic will delight and surprise family audiences.

The audience can expect songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3+ and their grown-ups, in the much-loved show that’s toured Britain and the world!

Relaxed Performance
