The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood...

Join the Gruffalo’s Child at artsdepot on her adventurous mission in Tall Stories’ enchanting adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious creatures – but the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

Let your imagination run wild with songs, laughs and scary fun for everyone aged 3 to 103.

“Warm, witty and beautifully made… a fantastic family favourite” LondonTheatre1

These performances are signed for the benefit of audience members who use sign language. Trained British Signed Language (BSL) interpreters usually stand to one side of the stage and interpret the script used by the performers; in these cases we’ve marked on the seating plan where you’ll get the best view of the signer.

For some shows (like The Gruffalo’s Child), the BSL interpreter is integrated into the performance and will move around with the performers.

Relaxed performances are open to everyone but are particularly suitable for people with sensory, communication or learning disabilities, and anyone who would benefit from a less formal environment. Audience members should feel comfortable making noise and moving around as and when they need to.

Touch Tours give blind or visually impaired audience members an opportunity to go up on stage and touch parts of the set, props and costumes to help immerse themselves in the imaginary world on stage. They can also be attended by anyone who would benefit from familiarising themselves with the auditorium and set before attending a performance.

Touch Tours usually take place 1 hour before the performance start time, but please check with the Box Office as this can vary.

To attend a Touch Tour, please contact the Box Office on 020 8369 5454 or email boxoffice@artsdepot.co.uk at least 48 hours before the touch tour.
