CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

How the Whale Became

How the Whale BecameT1112462617
Have you ever wondered why whales are so huge? Why foxes are crafty or why polar bears have white coats? The answers to all these questions and more are found in this enchanting family opera by composer Julian Philips and librettist Edward Kemp. The work draws inspiration from Ted Hughes's well-loved story collection The Dreamfighter and Other Creation Tales.
Music Julian Philips

(And Other Tales)

A diverse ensemble of singers and musicians will bring to life witty and irreverent tales that are sure to keep everyone, from ages 5 and over, engrossed and delighted. Linbury Studio
