The Gruffalo Live


On Saturday I took my older two children (age 5 and almost 3) to see the Gruffalo Live at the Lyric Theatre in London. We all had so much fun. The Gruffalo was our book of the week, so the children were really prepared for all the joining in!

The show latest about an hour, which is just right for this age group. The characterization was really good and there were plenty of giggles for the grown-ups as well as the children. There were lots of songs, which were lively and catchy, and we just loved the mouse and the Gruffalo.

If you get a chance to see it as it tours the country then please do go. It's brilliant and I'd definitely like to take my youngest when he's old enough to go!


We got out tickets through Little Bird, a great site for discount vouchers for children's activities.
