Internationally acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories is returning to Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, following hot on the heels of The Gruffalo’s sell out tour and his monstrous West End success they present The Gruffalo’s Child – with attitude! Just how brave is she? One wild and windy night, the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he? (Fri 22 – Sun 24 Jun).

This magical, musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning sequel to The Gruffalo is full of songs, laughs and lots of fun for children aged 3 and up and their families.
