Family Fun this season at The Met

This season The Met presents three fantastic shows to keep kids entertained. Go on an adventure with Sam, meet a tap dancing mermaid and pull Pinocchio’s strings in adventures perfect for families this January and February.

On Saturday 30th January Stories and More present Adventures with Sam: on the Farm, an interactive fun filled show with original music and songs that’s perfect for families.


Jump head first into Sam’s next adventure and come on down to the farm. Meet Heidi the hen, Simon the sheep dog and help solve the mystery of the missing golden egg. This January come along and use your detective skills, be braver than a bear and don’t forget your imagination.


‘A breath of fresh air for children’s theatre, unique, creative and filled with fun…the perfect family show.’ Chats Palace Theatre


Tickets for Adventures with Sam at 11am are £6. The show is suitable for ages 3 – 7.


Half term brings the story of The Tap Dancing Mermaid (Monday 15 February) and The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio (Friday 19 February). Both featuring stunning puppets they’re sure to delight adults and children alike.


The Tap Dancing Mermaid tells the story of Marina Skippett who is forbidden to dance at home so she creeps out at night to tap dance to the sounds of the sea. But then one magical night she meets a mysterious watery boy swimming along and her life is never the same again.


Hailed as being ‘just everything a children’s theatre experience should be’ (Childplays), this innovative and exciting one woman show by Tessa Bide features original music and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps in your shoes and join in.


Tickets for The Tap Dancing Mermaid are £7 with performances at 11am & 1pm on Monday 15 February. The show is suitable for ages 3+


On Friday 19 February one of the best-loved classics comes to life in The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio.


Crickets, cats, foxes and, of course, the world-famous puppet, will spring out of a collection of dusty, old, magic books while Patrick Lynch from CBeebies pulls all the strings to bring you the true story of Pinocchio, no lie. Who nose? He might even find his father and become a real boy.


Lynch creates close rapport with his audience; they are with him every inch of the way.’ British Theatre Guide (on Puss in Boots)
