A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood…
Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?
Songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the much-loved show that’s toured Britain and the world!

We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead!
So it’s time to prepare yourselves for Horrible Histories live on stage with the West End show that's never toured before!
Will you roar with laughter with Richard the Lionheart? Has William Wallace met his match? Can King Charles keep his head? Will you see eye to eye with Admiral Nelson? Does the Duke of Wellington get the boot? Find out what a baby farmer did and meet the Lady of the Lamp! Get ready for your great escape from the First World War!
It's history with the nasty bits left in!
The Horrible Histories stage shows have become a bit of a British institution. Sparky, cheeky and covered in poo!
Hilariously vulgar, brilliantly grisly – it has the young audience in stitches!
By Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
Large in size and keen in nature, Zog is so eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know. Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three. Luckily, the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet…a duel with knight, Sir Gadabout the Great!
The smash-hit stage adaptation from Freckle Productions (the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Tabby McTat) is back in 2020 and promises to be bigger, brighter and more roar-some than ever before! With brand new songs from Joe Stilgoe (The Jungle Book, The Midnight Gang) and directed by Emma Kilbey, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog is a magical production for all ages.
Running Time: Approximately one hour
Age suitability: All ages welcome.
