Woodland Tales with Granddad

Date: Sunday, Oct 27 - Saturday, Nov 2
Venue: The Wardrobe Theatre

Following the enchanting Fireside Tales and Christmas Tales comes a magical new puppetry show with Granddad from Bristol’s puppet masters Pickled Image. For ages 3-8 and their families, this one carries an important environmental message.

Something is happening in the woods, voices can be heard, and a strange metallic smell fills the air. Machines are gathering at its edge and a mysterious call is heard across the valley. Laura the ladybird, Jeffrey the spider, Brett the woodlouse and Willoughby the woodpecker are worried.

Velda the vixen knows there’s only one person who can help them – Granddad. But is there enough time? Can they save the wood? And will the mystery stranger help?

“We thought it was simply superb! A beautiful experience of wonderful storytelling.”
Theatre Royal Plymouth

“Magical, beguiling, emotional and eye-wideningly beautiful.”
