The Hug

Ages 2-8

Calendar Icon Event Ended: 13 Nov 2021
Age Rating IconAges 2-8
Clock Icon45 minutes

A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance 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.

Based on the heart-warming and funny book by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar, The Hug invites audiences on a journey full of fun, laughter and love, with beautiful and witty music by Tom Gray, of Gomez.

At the end of the performance children are invited onto the stage for a very special hug from the puppets.

The Hug is a Long Nose Puppets production.
