Illusion and reality collide as legendary film-makers the Quay Brothers place the action in a dream-like world.

    IGGETY ZIGGETY ZAGGETY ZOOM! Join the Witch and her cat on their mission to defeat the dragon in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

But this broomstick’s not meant for five and - CRACK - it snaps in two... just as the hungry dragon appears! 

  • Ross Noble

    London Palladium

    Who is El Hablador? It’s Ross Noble.

    No, but who is the one they call El Hablador? I just said, it is Ross Noble. You know? Long hair, does stand up where he dances about the stage, spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a show.

    But what is the legend of El Hablador? I don’t think it’s a thing. It’s clearly Ross coming up with a name for his show, so he can make out like he is some sort of mysterious shadowy figure.

    Ok I get it.

    Ross Noble returns to dance around the stage spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a hilarious stand up show. At some point, he may wander into a shadowy part of the stage and look a bit shadowy.

    Your passport to a saner living.

    Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show to the stage. Based on her number one best seller, A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled. She's been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind - how to use it, not lose it. Ruby Wax if you don't know is a much loved, U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of Absolutely Fabulous and is a mental health campaigner. By the way, she graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago so she should know her stuff.
