Families are invited to enjoy Christmas with The Owl and the Pussycat, a fizzgiggious show all about where, what and who our family really are.

Theatregoers can join Owly-cat and fellow family members, Jumblie and Quangle Wangle Quee, in a story inspired by the nonsense world of Edward Lear.

The spongetaneous trio travel to the dolomphious land where the bong tree grows, learning all about the creatures who live there and their curious habits. Discover whether this meloobious family will return together – and whether they will always be a three.
