Half Term is a time for Children’s Classics at The Met

The Met presents classic stories for kids of all ages this February half-term; with Rudyard Kipling’s The Just So Stories, fairytales from The Brothers Grimm and Jack and The Beanstalk.


On Saturday 15 February at 1pm Red Table Theatre Company bring Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories to life in a song-filled show for ages 4+.


Why does the moon pull the tides? Why does the camel have a hump? Why is the elephant’s nose so long? Red Table Theatre use umbrellas, pots, pans, socks, cushions, tennis balls and lampshades to create fantastical creatures and worlds, answering all these curious questions and more.


The Brothers Grimm arrive on Wednesday 19 February at 7pm with a magical suitcase full of curiosities. Once opened, mayhem and magic tumbles out in rich tales itching to be told by the master storytellers themselves. The world of The Brother’s Grimm is a world where wishing sometimes works and you ought to be afraid of the Big Bad Wolf…


Presented by Babbling Vagabonds Theatre, The Brothers Grimm is a spellbinding show for families and folktale fans, full of storytelling, shadow play, puppet and pop ups. Ages 7-14.


On Thursday 20 February CBeebies star Patrick Lynch comes to The Met with Lyngo Theatre’s adaptation of classic English fairytale Jack and The Beanstalk.


‘Fee Fi Fo Fum, it’s a giant of a show and we’d love you to come.’


Expect lots of surprises, a gripping story and beautiful images as Jack sells his cow for 5 magic beans and finds himself in the land above the clouds. Ages 3+ (and their giants).
