Best Bits

We're going to the West End

We're going to see a bear hunt

What a beautiful play!

We're not scared! 

The smash-hit production of We're Going on a Bear Hunt returns vividly and noisily to the West End stage in director Sally Cookson’s fun-filled adaptation set to Benji Bower’s versatile lively score.

Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog on a quest to find a bear; as they wade through the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy, squelchy mud!

  • Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure
  • Adapted for the stage from the modern classic written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
