The Snail and the Whale

  • the-snail-and-the-whale-ot-large
Sail across the high seas this Christmas as The Snail and the Whale makes its way to the Apollo Theatre London. Based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved picture book, The Snail and the Whale begins performances from December.

A tiny sea snail, longing to see the world, hitches a ride from the tail of large humpback whale. Together, the pair go on an amazing journey across land and sea – but when the whale gets beached, how one earth will the snail save him?

The story of The Snail and the Whale is brought to life by Tall Stories, the same Olivier Award-nominated company who brought you The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom live on stage.

Filled with live music and lots of laughs, The Snail and the Whale is the perfect theatre experience for young children and adults alike. Don’t miss it when it sails into London’s Apollo Theatre this festive season.

Child Friendly?

The Snail and the Whale is recommended for ages 4+.
