Elmer is not elephant colour
Elmer is patchwork

Join three friends on a joyful jungle adventure in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the much-loved Elmer books by David McKee.

Everyone loves the stories about Elmer the patchwork elephant – whether he’s pretending to be an ordinary grey elephant or playing a practical joke. But has anyone ever actually seen him? Can you help find him? Is that a patchwork trunk hidden among the trees and bushes of the jungle?

Tall Stories brings the enchanting and colourful world of Elmer to life through songs, storytelling and puppetry – for everyone aged 3 and up.

Celebrate Elmer’s unique patchwork colours and wear all your colourful clothes when you see the show.
