The Gruffalo's Child was a popular concept for the children I brought. The show was not as engaging as I would have liked for this age group and was too short.

Ticketing fine. Staff very helpful. Excellent that booster seats were available. The actors were exuberant and put lots of energy into the performance. Compared to other shows by the same company (eg Smeds and Smoos last year) it wasn't quite as compelling - perhaps too much talking and not quite enough action which meant that the attention of kids in the audience lapsed for parts of the town. But our four year old granddaughter had a good time as did we!
