Direct from the West End, hit monster family show The Gruffalo will be heading to Lynn’s Corn Exchange to delight families with the musical stage adaptation of the award-winning book.

In preparation for his stage performance, the Vancouver Quarter will be holding a very special Gruffalo workshop next Thursday and Friday, from 10am to 4pm.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter manager, said: “We wanted to celebrate school being out and after the success of Aliens Love Underpants we thought The Gruffalo would be popular.”

Lots of themed activities will be taking place in the building next to Ikon, with a chance to colour in the Gruffalo’s footprints to help decorate the Corn Exchange.

Hear the characters come to life with storytelling throughout the day, and take part in some fun competitions. This is a free workshop open to children of all ages, so pop in and get creative.

Abbie added: “Come along and help make finger puppets and facemasks, we’re also hoping to do a trail through the town centre.”

Over August 1-3, Tall Stories will be staged at the theatre, with performances on the Friday at 2pm, and at 11am and 2pm on the Saturday and Sunday.

Meet a wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl and a maraca-shaking, party mad Snake!

Mouse can scare these hungry animals away with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo, but what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined...?

Voted the nation’s number one bedtime story by BBC Radio 2 listeners, The Gruffalo has been performed to more than a million people worldwide and has even hit the small screens in a star-studded TV animation.

The Gruffalo is the perfect family treat with plenty of songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3+ and their grown-ups.
