Grandad's Island

Syd’s favourite person in the whole wide world is Grandad. And Grandad’s favourite person is Syd. 

Join this intrepid duo as they head off on a heartwarming adventure filled with songs, laughter and jungles, which will change their lives forever.

Benji Davies’s award-winning book covers themes of love and loss and is brought magically and sensitively to life on stage by the team behind Flat Stanley and Red Riding Hood.

Venue: Studio Theatre

"A charming show which is as thought-provoking as it is beautiful" ★★★★★ Arts York

"The kids were mesmerised – it was such a lovely, lovely tale" York Mumbler

"Grandad’s Island includes genuinely moving moments, gentle comedy, and an artful use of projection. Syd and Grandad’s relationship is relatable and charming, and the audience invests entirely in Grandad’s character" Children's Theatre Reviews
