The magic of 'The Gruffalo's Child' with BSL Interpretation now on tour

No gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood...

Does this sound familiar? If you are, like me, a huge fan of Julia Donaldson and her wonderful storybooks, you must not miss the inclusive version of "The Gruffalo's Child" this winter.

Tall Stories are providing a variety of accessible performances (integrated British Sign Language, audio described performances, and relaxed performances) accommodating deaf, disabled, visually impaired and neurodivergent audiences, ensuring the much-loved tale can be enjoyed by everyone.
