“There’s half term frolics from the excellent Tall Stories. They're live streaming their ingenious production based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s story about a tiny snail who longs to see the world and hitches a ride on a whale’s tale. The show frames the original story in a clever way that gives it a human dimension and added emotional depth and this version made for digital audiences comes with live music and audience participation. Likely to win this enterprising company a trail of new friends on its virtual tour that takes it from Cardiff to Inverness, but which can be watched from your own home.”


Tall Stories proudly present a special live-streamed version of their much-loved reimagining of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classic book The Snail and the Whale.

Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale.

Live music, storytelling and plenty of audience interaction bring the story vividly to life in this heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up. This is not a pre-recorded video – anything could happen!

Every ticket you buy will help support the work of both Tall Stories and Pleasance. Come and join the adventure!
