I took my 3 year-old to see the show and to say that he enjoyed it is a massive understatement. In fact, he refused to leave the theatre. He cried all the way to the car because the show was finished. He was completely bewitched. I also loved it.

A fantastic show for all ages – our group from 18months to 69 years old were enthralled from start to finish! The highlight of the fringe for us this year!

RM, audience member

This was a wonderful show that we all (6,9 & 44yrs) LOVED!! Not familiar with the books, which didn’t matter. A perfect mix of imaginative story telling, wild adventures, comedy, lovely songs and excellent puppetry.
