Tales From Acorn Wood

Tales From Acorn Wood

Tales from Acorn Wood will be appearing at The Courtyard this October.

Tales from Acorn Wood is a collection of stories based on the Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler’s best-selling lift the flap books for preschool children.

This adaptation will be lovingly brought to life on stage this Autumn. There are currently over 75 scheduled dates around the UK, with more to come!

Poor old Fox has lost his socks! Are they in the kitchen or inside the clock? And Rat-a-tat-tat! Who’s that keeping tired Rabbit awake? You can also join in with Pig and Hen’s game of hide-and-seek and discover the special surprise Postman Bear is planning for his friends. The show is packed full of toe-tapping songs and an array of beautifully crafted puppets, as well as striking state of the art staging, projection and technology which incorporates the much-loved lift-the flap elements of the book on stage.

Julia Donaldson says: “I am really happy that the Tales from Acorn Wood are now moving to the stage. Fans of the books are bound to enjoy seeing the four main characters – Fox, Bear, Pig and Rabbit – brought to life through NLP’s clever staging. Live performance and songs are both very close to my heart and I am sure this production will delight children and families.” 

Tales from Acorn Wood will be in The Courtyard’s Main House on Wednesday 11 October at 1.30pm and 4pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit
