The Slightly Annoying Elephant at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 5–29 December 2019, free entry - Visit now

HOME Manchester bring a family-friendly Christmas with The Slightly Annoying Elephant, based on the original book written by David Walliams and illustrated by Tony Ross.

Little Angel Theatre are set to return to HOME, following the success of Wow! Said the Owl and Red Riding Hood & the Wolf – this time they present David Walliams’ hilarious story. Recommended for ages 3-8, the show has a pleasing running time of 50 minutes – just long enough to occupy those creative minds.

Brought to life through brilliant puppetry, the tale unfolds when Sam finds a very big surprise on his doorstep – a tired, hungry, cycling, antique-enthusiast hunk of an elephant. It turns out that Sam didn’t realise that adopting an animal at the zoo would be so much of a challenge… and that the elephant would end up coming to live with him too.

Super for young families, we think that this show is a great introduction to the magic of theatre…and elephants this Christmas.
