Puppets of a tortoise and a hedgehog smiling at each other in a frosty scene
Sun 6 Feb

The Hug

A brand new show by Long Nose Puppets, based on the heart-warming and funny book The Hug by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar.

This charming show stars a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug. Facing many rejections along the way, they meet a rather scary badger, an obsessive squirrel who knows A LOT about nuts, a fabulous fox and an owl who is trying hard to be wise. A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance.

Set to Tom Gray's beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love...and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.
