Based on the hit children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler The Snail and the Whale is one shell of a show for all the family.

This Tall Stories production brings to life the adventures this marauding mollusc through the eyes of an excitable young girl (Hannah Miller) and her father (Tim Hibberd).

Narrator Rachel Benson and her violin punctuate the drama which ebbs and flows like the tide until its celebratory finale.

Exciting, funny and heartwarming - this splash-hit is everything a children’s show should be.

• The Snail and the Whale runs until December 2. For tickets call the box office on 01603 598598.
