The Gruffalo goes on tour at East Riding libraries in October

Fri, 20 Sep 2019

Children from the East Riding and further afield will be asking “Where are you going to, little brown mouse?” as The Gruffalo Grand Tour is set to visit a number of local libraries in October.

The tour, which is part of the Children’s Festival during the Festival of Words 2019, will feature the puppet-telling of the classic children’s book The Gruffalo by festival favourites, Puppets, Plays and Story Days.

Carol Burton, from Puppets, Plays and Story Days, will bring the wonderful story to life with her interactive storytelling at the following libraries:

  • South Cave: Monday, 14 October, 2.30-3.15pm
  • North Ferriby: Tuesday, 15 October, 9-9.45am
  • Driffield: Tuesday, 15 October, 2-2.45pm
  • Market Weighton: Wednesday, 16 October, 11-11.45am
  • Hedon: Thursday, 17 October, 10.30-11.15am
  • Swanland: Friday, 18 October, 1-1.45pm
  • North Bridlington: Saturday, 19 October, 10-11am

At Beverley, on Sunday, 20 October between 3-4pm, there will be a relaxed performance of the event, whereby the performance offers a more relaxed environment, including the lights being on, noise allowed during the show, a chill out area for breaks, the availability of sensory fidget toys (if required) and movement in and out of the show.

To say “Hello” to the Gruffalo (and friends), tickets are £4 per child, with accompanying adults free.

The event is most suitable for children aged 3+, with tickets available online at www.festivalofwords.co.uk or by telephone on (01482) 392699 (please note that all tickets are subject to a 10% booking fee, capped for all events over £10).
