About the event

With over 40 million copies sold worldwide, this summer it's time to celebrate the huge success and joy of Eric Carle's timeless classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. 


This wonderful show is a great way to introduce your littlest kids to the theatre, and with its colourful visuals and clear storytelling, they'll love the stories just as much on stage as on the page. It'll be a treat for the grown-ups too, who no doubt will be feeling nostalgic as they remember these stories from back when they were learning to read!


The performance includes the stories of 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?', '10 Little Rubber Ducks', 'The Very Lonely Firefly' and of course, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. You'll go on an epic aquatic adventure with rubber ducks, meet fun characters with Brown Bear and help a lonely firefly find its friends.


Your kids will be on the edge of their seats throughout the performance - and practically jumping into the aisles when the caterpillar hatches from its egg and begins to eat its way through the story. You can expect your kids to be very, very, VERY hungry for more. Make the most of the amazing deal on early butterfly tickets before they fly away!
