The Gruffalo is heading to Billingham this October

Based on the nation’s favourite picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler – celebrating 25 years in 2024! Coming to Forum Theatre Billingham this October!

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

Songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the much-loved show that’s toured Britain and the world!

The show is gracing the Forum Theatre stage between Sunday 6 – Tuesday 8 October and tickets are available to purchase now.
