About the show 

‘Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world. Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale.

‘Together they go on an amazing journey, brought vividly to life through live music, storytelling and lots of laughs - but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? The Snail and the Whale is a heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up.’
