Children’s theatre comes to The Lights on Saturday, 1 April at 10.30am with the story of Tom Thumb.

Long ago when all the world was wood the most fearsome foe was the one that breathed fire…

The makers of ‘Chicken Licken’ and ‘Terry Jones Fairy Tales’ bring the story of Tom Thumb to life in an exciting adventure for children and their families.

Tom Thumb was the very first folk story ever printed in English in 1621 and mixes a legend set in the times of King Arthur with Celtic folklore. Follow Tom on his magical journey – from wizard Merlin and the Fair Queen to his quest from King Arthur to defeat a fearsome dragon.

This epic tale of the smallest hero in the world is told with superb puppetry, music and fantastic design.

Suitable for 4+

“When it comes to making children’s theatre, it’s clear DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre are part of the upper crust” (
