Woodland Tales with Granddad
Presented by Hattie Naylor and Pickled Image
Saturday 6th November 2021 – 2pm
Something is happening in the woods, voices can be heard, and a strange metallic smell fills the air. Machines are gathering at its edge and a mysterious call is heard across the valley. Laura the ladybird, Jeffrey the spider, Brett the Woodlouse and Willoughby the Woodpecker are worried. Velda the Vixen knows there’s only one person who can help them – Granddad. But is there enough time? Can they save the wood? And will the mysterious stranger help?
Featuring a cast of extraordinary puppets, this uproarious family show not only entertains, but has an important and timely environmental message to share
