The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood…

If you loved The Gruffalo, don't miss the sequel, which returns following previous sell-out Australian tours – now in a new West End production! Join the Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in this magical musical adaptation of the much-loved picture book.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood.  After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist... does he?

The team behind The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78 & 91-Storey Treehouses return with The Gruffalo's Child, bringing together physical theatre, music and puppetry to deliver songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up, and their adults.

This dramatisation of THE GRUFFALO’S CHILD is based on the picture book THE GRUFFALO’S CHILD © illustrations 2004 Axel Scheffler and © text 2004 Julia Donaldson published by Macmillan Children’s Books.
