The Gruffalo’s Child stage adaptation is touring the UK – here are all the dates and venues to see the show.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s popular picture book comes to life with a theatre production for all the family.

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. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious creatures – but the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?
