Half Term is packed with dragons, magic and tantalizing tales at The Met

The Met welcomes three delightful shows for children this half-term; The Dragon who Hates Poetry, Fireside Tales with Granddad and Little Howard’s Big Show.


On Tuesday 29 October at 11am CBeebies star and poet Dominic Berry comes to The Met with The Dragon who Hates Poetry, a fun show packed with lyrics, laughter and lots of joining in.


There is no dragon scarier in any earthly place. His face looks like his bottom, and his bottom like his face…


Armed with only pen and paper, Dominic Berry needs help to bring this fearful dragon’s reign to an end. Suitable for ages 5+.


Pickled Image Theatre Company bring enchanting puppet show, Granddad Tales, to The Met on Thursday 31 October at 1.30pm.


Cuddle up around the campfire as Granddad recalls a daring escape from a hungry shark, tuck into a marshmallow or two as he attempts to make a new set of underpants for a giant. Guaranteed to spark the imagination of everyone aged 4 – 104, Granddad Tales is presented using exquisite puppets and captivating storytelling.


The nation’s favourite human-cartoon double act come to The Met on Friday 1 November at 1pm with Little Howard’s Big Show.


With three smash hit series’ of their acclaimed BBC One show Little Howard’s Big Question and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Award under their belt, Little Howard and Big Howard find themselves in trouble with the Queen following their performance on the The Royal Variety Performance. Now a sinister government inspector is lurking and our heroes must perform the show of their young, and not-quite-so-young, lives.


This brand new show features songs, sketches, magic, a cheeky pigeon from Barnsley, The Royal Monkey Philharmonic Orchestra and more laughs than should be possible. Suitable for ages 3+.
