Tall Stories return with The Snail and The Whale on Thursday July 21 and Friday July 22.

A tiny snail longs to see the world, so she hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale.

Together they go on an amazing journey, experiencing sharks and penguins, icebergs and volcanoes.

But when the whale gets beached, how will the tiny snail save him?

Tall Stories’ adaptation is inspired by the work of Storybook Soldiers, who help British military personnel abroad to record bedtime story CDs for their children back home.

The journey of the tiny snail is seen through the eyes of a very adventurous young girl – who’d love to be going round the world with her seafaring father.

Tall Stories have adapted both The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom for the stage previously.

The show starts at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are priced at £12.50 and can be booked by calling the ticket office on 01536 470 470 or by visiting
