Scamp Theatre who brought the past shows Private Peaceful and Friend or Foe to the venue, has creatively adapted a magical collection of stories from the bestselling Children’s Laureate, Julia Donaldson.

Tiddler and And Other Terrific Tales is one of Julia Donaldson’s most popular titles along with The Gruffalo, and tells tales from under the sea, over land, on the farm and in the jungle – all woven together with live music, songs, puppets and a host of colourful characters who will delight. In all the show combines the tales: Tiddler, The Smartest Giant in Town, A Squash & A Squeeze and Monkey Puzzle, providing an absolute treat for children 3 + and their families.

Award-winning Scamp Theatre (who has joined forces with Watford Palace Theatre for this show) has been endorsed by Julia Donaldson herself, with the author commenting: “Scamp Theatre send shivers down my spine. They are so lively and innovative.”

Tiddler and other Terrific Tales takes place on Friday June 21 at 10am and 1pm and on Saturday 22 June at 10.30am and 2pm.

Tickets for Tiddler are priced at £12 for adults and £11 for children and discounts are available.
