The Snail and the Whale

The Snail and the Whale

Apollo Theatre · 30 NOV - 05 JAN

Are you ready to set sail this Christmas?


Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world, inspired by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved picture book.

Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, brought vividly to life through live music, storytelling and lots of laughs – but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him?

A heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up, from Tall Stories, the Olivier Award-nominated company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Room on the Broom’ live on stage.

Age Recommendation: 4+

Critic reviews

Tall Stories’s take on the beloved Julia Donaldson picturebook is imaginative but doesn’t quite work
