Woodland Tales with Granddad

Woodland Tales with Granddad

Charming childrens show (age 3+) with puppets.

This show was cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations but we’re delighted to have rescheduled to this new date and all ticketholders should have received updated details by phone or letter. Simply write the new date on your tickets and write it in your diary!  If you bought online/phone and don’t have your tickets, they’re still with us and can be collected any time after we re-open including just prior to the show.

We can’t wait to welcome our lovely audiences back to The Core and our counter will re-open for face to face callers as soon as we’re allowed.

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 a one person who can help them – Granddad. But is there enough time? Can they save the wood? And will the mystery stranger help?

This promises to be an incredible show with an important environmental message to share.  Please note, as this delightful family show contains smaller size puppets, we have decided to limited the audience size to ensure all children can see and hear - so will not be opening the whole theatre up for sale.

Age guidance: 3+
