The cast of five, including Julia’s guitar-playing husband Malcolm, bring Julia's stories to life with songs, puppetry and a touch of magic.

  • Celebrate 20 years of the Gruffalo
  • Bringing to life the stories that have captured the imagination of children everywhere
  • An amazing family experience for ages 4-10 
  • Packs in five different stories, telling them in inventive and varied ways, with no shortage of silliness.
