Based on the heart-warming and funny book ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. Starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug.

They face many rejections along the way from a rather scary badger, a squirrel (who knows A LOT about nuts), a shy frog, a fabulous fox and an owl who really wants to be wise.

Set to Tom Gray’s beautiful and witty music, the audience is invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love…and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.

Doors open 30 mins before show time.

Duration: 45 minutes, plus the chance to “meet the puppets” after and experience an actual HUG!
