Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales

back to shows book now

Presented by Freckle Productions

Based on the books by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler


Four terrific tales - one superb show!

Under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, these terrific tales are woven together with live music, puppetry and a whole host of colourful characters from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's best-loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze. Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed!

Is Tiddler telling the truth?
Will Monkey find his Mummy?
Will George The Giant make lots of friends?
Can the old lady really squash and squeeze all those animals in?

This delightful production is brought to you by the team behind Stick Man Live, adapted from the bestselling books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.

Suitable for all ages!

An hour-long feast of storytelling that thrills children and parents alike. A masterpiece"


A delight from start to finish. A room of children laughing hysterically, all totally mesmerised by the action"


To call this show lively would be a whopping understatement. Packed with gleeful songs and jolly good fun"

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our Front of House entrance on King Street into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our temporary Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
