The Hug  

Presented by Long Nose Puppets

At present we have no further tickets available for this event. To be added to our waiting list please email 

  Long Nose Puppets are proud to announce their brand-new show. 
A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance.  

Based on  the  heart-warming and funny book 'The Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar.  Starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative  hug. 

They face many rejections along the way from a rather scary badger, a squirrel (who knows A LOT about nuts), a shy frog, a fabulous fox and an owl who really wants to be wise.  

Set to  Tom  Gray's beautiful and witty music,  the  audience are invited on a journey full of fun,  laughter and love...and at  the  end, a very special  hug  from our puppets.
