A lovely show – warm, witty and beautifully made. I think it will be a fantastic family favourite.★★★★★


There are nods to the adults in the audience but never at the expense of the magical storytelling and the enjoyment of the little ones.★★★★★

West End Wilma

With songs you’ll be singing all evening (whether you like it or not), just the right amount of spookiness for the intended age group, and sublime creativity with dance, movement and roving trees, this is a performance guaranteed to exceed expectations. Tall Stories does it again.★★★★★

Sequels are notoriously tricky affairs, rarely living up to their original. But once again, children’s theatre company, Tall Stories have proved they’re incapable of staging a bad show. This clever adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s picture book is every bit as funny, charming and innovative as The Gruffalo.

One catchy tune follows another, as the talented cast drive the show along with unremitting gusto. Above all, The Gruffalo’s Child is fun, easy to follow and captivating for young wandering minds – in short, everything good children’s theatre should be.

We LOVED your Gruffalo's Child performance on Saturday. A huge thank you and congratulations to all involved, what a talented cast and imaginative production. So much more than the book.

Just wanted to say how much my family and I enjoyed The Gruffalo's Child yesterday. I thought it was so well put together, great acting, great set, great catchy songs. Really well-adapted from the original book - very sympathetic to Julia Donaldson's style, but thoughtfully developed into a bigger story. So lovely to be able to see such high quality theatre so close to home.

A fun-packed furry treat for toddlers and their families★★★★


The book has been effortlessly translated to the stage and is likely to prove just as popular as the original… In many ways this is better than the original stage version.

Brighton Evening Argus

Lovingly and simply brought to the stage... The little guy wins through and might isn’t proved to be right: what better message could Gruffa-holics of all ages take away with them?★★★★

Evening Standard

My son who is 4 years old loved it. It was magical to watch his face light up and brought a lump to my throat and tears in my eyes. Well done and thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my little boy's first experience of the theatre so very magical.
