Join a tiny snail on her trip round the world in Tall Stories’ magical, musical production inspired by the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Longing to see the world, a tiny snail hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing adventure - but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? Follow the tiny snail’s exciting journey, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father...

Storytelling, live music and lots of laughs for everyone aged 4 and up, from the Olivier Award-nominated company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Room on the Broom’ live on stage.
