The Storm Whale

Based on the books by Benji Davies

Aimed at ages 4 - 8

This event has passed.

All tickets £8 on Fridays at 4.45pm

Running Time: One hour 15 minutes including an interval

Noi lives with his Dad and their six cats by the sea. One spring, while his Dad was busy at work, Noi rescued a little whale that washed up on the beach during a storm. There a friendship began that changed their lives forever.

The following winter Noi’s Dad takes one last trip in his fishing boat. Noi is alone once more and longs to see his friend again. He waits and watches, watches and waits… will it take another winter storm to bring them back together again?

Benji Davies’ tender and heart-warming children’s stories of friendship, love and courage are brought to life as one enchanting theatre show.

Age guidance

The Storm Whale is aimed at ages 4-8, and builds on the simple stories from both the books to create a family show with a wide appeal, exploring friendship, love and loneliness. There is some mild peril when the boy is stuck on the ice, but all ends well.

Medusa's First Kiss

Medusa's First Kiss

Medusa has just started at Olympus High. Look, there’s sports star Atlas out on the field, Aphrodite cheerleading from the side, goth Persephone hanging out by the school gates and don’t forget mysterious school-witch Circe... Maybe this is the school where Medusa will finally learn how to fit in. But soon enough she’s out with the gods, as mean girl Athena writes a load of nasty words on her locker and even her own snakes-for-hair decide to give her the cold shoulder. She’s on her own.

Will she ever find friends, let alone love? And who will help her along the way?

For everyone over 10
