Family Fun Day, Sun 1 Sep 2019


268 Waldegrave Road,
Strawberry Hill,


Three of Aesop's classic fables – The Ants & The Grasshopper, The Fox & The Stork and The Hare & The Tortoise – have been woven together into this delightful, funny and engaging play for children of all ages. Harvest time is nearly here and there’s still so much work for the animals to do to make sure they will last through the winter. Can they put their disagreements aside and get the job done in time for the festival?

Fireside Folktales is the latest project from South West London-based theatre company Shadow Road Productions and is run by Emma King-Farlow and Amy Floyd. They specialise in retelling myths, legends and folktales from around the world, each presented as an original short play performed by a company of professional actors to audiences of all ages in their magical 8m diameter Story Tent!
