We're Going on a Bear Hunt

Based on the book by Michael Rosen

Direct from a smash-hit West End season and international tour.

Michael Rosen’s award-winning book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is brought vividly and noisily to the stage in director Sally Cookson’s fun-filled adaptation set to Benji Bower’s versatile lively score.

Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog on their quest to find a bear; as they wade through the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy, squelchy mud! Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure – plus a few special surprises!

Children's picnic meal boxes will be available to purchase before the show at £3 each.

Age recommendation 3 – 7
