The Story

The Smartest Giant in Town is the story of a giant who tries to do the right thing. All his life, everyone has known him as the scruffy, shabby giant, always in the same old nightgown. But since the nightgown is the only thing that fits him, he has no other choice. This is exactly why he leaps at the news that a new shop in town has clothes his size. Armed with his new wardrobe, George becomes the smartest giant in town, but sadly only for a few fleeting moments.

On his way, he meets a few animals and they ask him for his help. And, the only way to do so is if George gives them his new clothes. Watch as this heartening story of friendship and being there for those in need unravels. Get The Smartest Giant in Town London tickets for the whole family this holiday season!

It was on time and finished on time. It was loud enough to hear through constant little disruptions of other little ones, but not too loud to scare them. My little ones both really enjoyed it
