Join storyteller Grethe Mangala Jensen for some some fun, interactive adaptations of the Danish fairy tale author H.C. Andersen’s most beloved tales, The Tinderbox and The Fir Tree.

There will be lots of joining in when meeting the three gigantic dogs with eyes as big as tea cups, mill stones and Big Ben.

“Grethe had 16 children absolutely spellbound. Full of creativity, suspense and laughter” Jo Swinson, MP

Discover what happens to the tiny little fir tree (who so wishes to be the biggest fir tree in the forest) as we delve into a story about self-acceptance and having confidence in being exactly who you are.
