From the team behind Zog and Tabby McTat, funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed – a perfect treat for all ages!
Is Tiddler telling the truth?
Will Monkey find his Mummy?
Will George The Giant make lots of friends?
Can the old lady really squash and squeeze all those animals in?

★★★★ 'The largely under five years old audience sat enraptured throughout this thoroughly jolly affair. Funny and goes straight for the inner child.' Reviews Gate
'This production should have the word “fun” stamped through it like a stick of rock. More charm than Mary Poppins teaching a kitten to cuddle a baby lamb. And like Mary, it’s pretty much perfect in every way.' Camden New Journal
★★★★★ ‘An hour-long feast of storytelling that thrills children and parents alike. A masterpiece’ Broadway Baby
‘TO CALL THIS SHOW LIVELY WOULD BE A WHOPPING UNDERSTATEMENT. Packed with gleeful songs and jolly good fun.’ The Guardian
‘Stitches together Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s beloved adventures with wit, innovation and endearing silliness. Children’s shows make me smile, this one made me continually grin. A children’s treat that adults too can guiltlessly enjoy. It may only be a tiddler, but this show has a big heart and is brimming with inventiveness.’
