Long Nose Puppets: The Hug
Sat 29 Jan 2022 | 11am, 2pm
Based on the heart-warming and hilarious book The Hug by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar, this is a tale of hope, empathy and finding that right SOMEONE.
A hedgehog and a tortoise are both in search of a restorative hug. They face many rejections along the way, from a greedy and rather scary badger and an obsessive squirrel (who knows a LOT about nuts), to a shy frog, a fabulously cross fox and an owl who really, really wants to be wise.
Set to the beautiful and witty music of Tom Gray (of Mercury Prize winning band Gomez), Long Nose Puppets invite little ‘uns on a journey full of fun, laughter, love and acceptance… and at the end, a very special hug from the puppets.
For most children, you can’t ask for a better first step into the world of live performance.
Age guidance: 2 – 8, but fun for all the family
