The Hug

Presented by Long Nose Puppets

Based on the heart-warming and funny book ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar, join us at The Hub for The Hug! This interactive theatre experience stars a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug.  

Facing many rejections along the way, they meet a rather scary badger, an obsessive squirrel who knows A LOT about nuts, a fabulous fox, and an owl who is trying hard to be wise. A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance. 

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

As always with our family shows, this is a relaxed performance and younger siblings are welcome to come along too (children 18 months and under do not require a ticket unless participating in the show).  

Sunday 13th March | 11am & 2pm | £10

Suitable for 2-8 years.
