‘The Gruffalo’ heads to Alexandra Palace this Summer

Family favourite live theatre show The Gruffalo will play a limited season at Alexandra Palace this July and August.

Filled with songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up – and their grown-ups – this 55-minute musical stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s beloved children’s picture book is a regular theatrical favourite.

This acclaimed show is produced by award-winning theatre company Tall Stories – a creative force whose productions include The Gruffalo’s Child, the Olivier Award Nominated Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale and The Snow Dragon.

Co-Artistic Director of Tall Stories and director of the show Olivia Jacobs says “Following our highly appreciated Christmas season of ‘The Gruffalo’s Child’, we are delighted to return to the beautiful theatre at Ally Pally for some summer family fun with our classic hit show ‘The Gruffalo’.” 

Families travelling to Alexandra Palace to see The Gruffalo are encouraged to make a day of it with so many things to see and do inside and out including hiring a pedalo on the wonderful boating lake, or cooling off with a skate at the Ice Rink. Picnic Boxes will also be available to buy so that you can make the most of the wonderful Park with a pre or post show lunch or tea!

Louise Stewart, CEO of Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust, says: “We are delighted to welcome Tall Stories back and can’t wait to see the magical world of ‘The Gruffalo’, which is an absolute classic, come alive here inside our stunning theatre.”

She added “Together with our huge range of family activities – from ice rink to boating lake, go ape to pitch & putt golf, plus 196 acres of park to enjoy – the Park and Palace offer a brilliant summer holiday day out for all the family.”

Tickets for The Gruffalo are now on sale.

The Gruffalo is booking from 30 July 2021 until 29 August 2021 at Alexandra Palace.
