Tall Stories present

The Snail and the
Whale - Livestream

Sun 25 Oct



A good story can take you all around the world without even leaving your room.

Tall Stories proudly present a special live-streamed version of their much-loved reimagining of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classic book The Snail and the Whale.

Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale.

Live music, storytelling and plenty of audience interaction bring the story vividly to life in this heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up. This is not a pre-recorded video – anything could happen!

Every ticket you buy will help support the work of both Tall Stories and CurveCome and join the adventure!

Running time: Approx. 60 minutes with no interval.

This performance will be broadcast live to you at home from the Tall Stories Studio. You can watch on your browser or via Apple/Android/
Amazon Fire TV – for more details on how to do this, please click here

The virtual doors will open at 1.45pm and the performance will begin at 2pm. There will also be a live chat function that will allow you to interact with our performers and join in with the fun!


£20 – £10
