The Hug Puppet Show, Astley Cheetham Gallery, Stalybridge
This February Half Term enjoy a lovely puppet theatre show with The Hug at the Astley Cheetham Gallery in Stalybridge.
Taking place on 19th February with two shows at 11.30am and 2.30pm.
Organised by Tameside Culture, Long Nose Puppets will be bringing their brand-new show ‘The Hug’ . Based on the heart-warming and funny book ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar.
Follow a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug. Facing many rejections along the way, they meet a rather scary badger, an obsessive squirrel who knows A LOT about nuts, a fabulous fox and an owl who is trying hard to be wise. A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance.
Set to Tom Gray’s beautiful and witty music, the audience is invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love…and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.
Aimed at children between 2 to 9 years, tickets cost £3.50 for one child and one adult.
