Events at Hull Truck Theatre

A whole host of family shows are coming to Hull Truck Theatre, just in time for Half-Term and beyond

Enjoy Theatre as a family this Autumn at Hull Truck Theatre! With the weather getting that little bit colder, why not bring the kids in and warm up with some wonderfully imaginative family theatre? 

Engage the creative minds of your little ones with craft sessions before Great Adventures In Storyland, see some familiar faces like The Snow Dragon and The Gruffalo or help The Noise Next Door improvise an entirely new pirate adventure – since it’s made from your suggestions, you won’t see it anywhere else!

Hull Truck Theatre presents Great Adventures In Storyland
Saturday 26 October & Saturday 23 November – 10am & 11.30am

great Adventures in Story land

Step into an amazing place where anything can happen. A place with heroes and villains, action and adventure where the only limits are your imagination. Join the team on a quest to help save Storyland. Recommended for adventurers with a learning age of 3-6 years.

With it being so close to Halloween, the October performance will centre around a pumpkin and will mean some colourful crafting in the session before hand. Each month there is a new theme and moral to take away from the story that your young adventurers will help to tell.
