Enjoy a sparkling new musical adventure this Christmas, for everyone aged 5 to 105, from the Olivier-nominated producers of THE GRUFFALO, Tall Stories.

Who should be the statue in the town square? Who deserves a place on a pedestal? Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student?

The WILDE CREATURES, a live band of storytelling musicians, bring to life characters from Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy stories including ‘The Happy Prince’, ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ and ‘The Birthday of the Infanta’, and take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond.

Hauntingly beautiful tales told with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.
