Tall Stories

The Snail & the Whale

05 Dec - 03 Jan 2016

Back by popular demand, Jacksons Lane favourites Tall Stories (creators of the Gruffalo and last year’s Emily Brown and the Thing) present The Snail and the Whale for Christmas 2015. This much-loved, sell out production is an exciting collaboration with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

A tiny snail longs to see the world, so she hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, experiencing icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins... But when disaster strikes and 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...

The Snail and the Whale mixes storytelling, lots of laughs and fantastic new music played live on stage – in a show for everyone aged 4 and up.
