The Snail & The Whale
By Tall Stories

Fri 13 & Sat 14 Feb, 5.00pm (Fri) & 11.00am & 1.30pm (Sat)
Tall Stories (creators of the Gruffalo and Room on the Broom stage shows) present their latest exciting collaboration with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. A tiny snail longs to see the world, so she hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. But when the whale gets beached, how will the tiny snail save him? Follow the tiny snail’s amazing journey, as seen through the eyes of a very adventurous young girl, who’d love to be going around the world with her seafaring father. Storytelling, live music and lots of laughs, in a show for everyone aged 4 and up.

Love’s Labour’s Won
The Royal Shakespeare Company, Live from Stratford Upon Avon

Wednesday 4 March, 7.00pm
As part of a season marking the centenary of the First World War, Christopher Luscombe returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to direct a single company of actors in a fresh pairing of two of Shakespeare’s most sparkling comedies, set in the shadow of war but rejoicing in our capacity to find love in the most unlikely places.

Shakespeare’s comic romance plays out amidst the high spirits of a post-war house party in autumn 1918. As memories of the trenches give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship.

The best of British theatre broadcast live the the big screen at Gala.
