Following sellout visits with The Snow Dragon and Twinkle Twonkle, Tall Stories, the company behind The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom bring their magical adaptation of The Snail and the Whale to the Albany for Christmas!


A tiny snail longs to see the world, so she hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, experiencing sharks and penguins, icebergs and volcanoes. But when the whale gets beached, how will the tiny snail save him?


Follow the tiny snail’s exciting journey, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father. With storytelling, live music and lots of laughs, in a show for everyone aged 4 and up.


Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
