Back by popular demand, Tall Stories’ live adaptation of children’s favourite picture book
The Gruffalo takes to the Derngate stage from Friday 28 to Saturday 30 May.

Touring nationally and internationally since 2001, this magical musical adaptation of
the best selling picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler has been
performed over 4000 times to over a million people the world over!

The award-wining book was recently voted the nation’s number one bedtime story

star studded TV adaptation on BBC!

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep dark wood...

Mouse can scare away these hungry animals with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo,
But what happens when she comes face to face with the very creature she imagined...?
