Following hot on the heels of The Gruffalo’s monstrous West End success comes The Gruffalo’s Child - with attitude! Just how brave is she? Find out for yourselves by joining her in the West End this Christmas. 

The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood... 

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?
Tall Stories returns, bringing Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning sequel to life in this magical, musical adaptation.

A brilliant adaptation of The Gruffalo's Child. Interactive, kid-friendly, funny and bursting with wit and invention, it also has memorable songs and top-notch performances from the three-strong cast. Made for a very enjoyable morning.

I loved the overall production of the Gruffalo's child...good music and fun cast ...however it left my toddler quite baffled as to who was who....none of the characters costumes looked like the characters from the book and all around us you could hear children saying the same thing.....that's not snake! Where is mouse? That's not owl!! And getting bored because the story is changed so much to stretch it out timewise, young children need more of a visual anchor to keep them interested and remind them of what they were seeing. Basically it was too much aimed for older people and the children were left a little bit out by not sticking to what the characters would have looked like ...the Gruffalo dad & fox was the only one that looked slightly similar to a fox ....every other costume was rubbish.

A wonderful production. Loved the audience participation. My five year year old Grandson wanted to remain in the theatre to watch it all over again. Well done and thank you.
