Half Term Holiday Fun for Kids this February

Half term is busy at The Met this February as we welcome three theatre companies with three unique stories for children aged 3 plus. Featuring A Little Bird Told Me on Saturday 19 February, a lesson on How the Koala Learned to Hug on Monday 21 and Elmer the Elephant on Friday 25 February.

Snail Tales Theatre Company presents A Little Bird Told Me on Saturday 19 February at 1pm. Snail Tales brings you the most original collection of stories you\’ll see this year – as every last one of them has been created in the minds of children.
Enter the world of wizards, witches and magical animals brought to life with music puppetry, ventriloquism, audience participation and a touch of magic! Delightfully absurd and always colourful, curious and fun, the stories explore everything from helpful gazelles to dragon poo.
Adapted to feature music, puppetry and plenty of audience participation this is one family show you will be talking about with your grandchildren!
Tickets are £6.
Written especially for parents to enjoy with their children, How The Koala Learnt To Hug is a charming, tale about the magic of family and, of course, the importance of a nice warm hug! The show comes to The Met on Monday 21 February at 1pm.

With heart warming characters including Natalie Wombat, Natascha the Witch and Karen the Koala this little gem of a book is filled with all the wonders of the land down under.

How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales was written by author Steven Lee who also wrote children\’s favourites The Witch\’s Bogey and Bink And The Hairy Fairy.

Join us for some great stories, sing along songs, superb games and some first class hugging. All you need are your ears. (And your arms!)

Blunderbus Theatre Company return with Elmer the Elephant on Friday 25 February at 1pm.

Elmer was different. Elmer was patchwork. He was yellow and orange and red and pink and purple and blue and green and black and white. But, he was not elephant-coloured. One night Elmer couldn\’t sleep for thinking, and the think that he was thinking was that he was tired of being different.

So, off he set in search of the elephant-coloured berry bush. And this is where our story begins…

Based on the best-selling children\’s book by author, David McKee, this brand new, fun-filled version of \’Elmer\’ bursts to life with jungle characters, catchy songs, and beautiful hand-crafted puppets!

Tickets are £8, £6 for children and concessions.
