We are based in London at Somerset House on the Strand.

Kenny Wax Family Entertainment Ltd. are the general managers for three of our shows (‘The Gruffalo’, ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’ and ‘Room on the Broom’) and handle all tour booking and administration for those productions within the UK.

Our shows are represented in North America by Holden & Arts Associates.

In Australia our shows are produced by CDP Theatre Producers.

We are members of the Independent Theatre Council, International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) and the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People (ASSITEJ).

Nearly every August we perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We usually perform at the Pleasance.

‘The Gruffalo’, ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’, ‘Room on the Broom’ and ‘The Snail and the Whale’ are published by Macmillan Children’s Books. 'Emily Brown and the Thing' is published by Hachette Children's Group

While making our fact-inspired shows, we were advised by:

The Natural History Museum for ‘How the Giraffe got its Neck’
The Royal Society for ‘Twinkle Twonkle’
The University of Hertfordshire for ‘My Brother the Robot’


Arts Council England has granted us funding for specific productions, most recently ‘My Brother the Robot’.

John Lyon’s Charity aims to enhance the conditions of life and improve the life-chances of young people in London through education. It has helped to fund several of our projects, most recently primary school art workshops in Westminster based upon ‘The Snow Dragon’.

The London Borough of Hillingdon supported Tall Stories from 2006 to 2009 with subsidised office space and rehearsal space as well as funding a programme of work to provide low cost performances to schools within the borough.
