Little Hamelin - special family event

Presented by: Norwich Puppet Theatre

Fri 9th Aug 2019 to Sat 10th Aug 2019

Price: £12.00 - £44.00

Running time: 1 hour plus 50 minute show

Ages: 3+

The story of the Pied Piper is set in Hamelin, a pretty European town plagued by rats! Help us to create a miniature Hamelin town in our Octagon - make your own little houses and put them on the map! Enjoy some creative playtime together, with plenty to discover along the way.


Your tickets give you access to the town for one hour either before or after the selected performance. As each Little Hamelin session has limited capacity, participants can only attend the specific session they have booked.


Join the fun before or after watching our humorous show, Pied Piper, to make the most of your time at the Theatre.

Relaxed Events

The 12 noon session on Thursday 8 August is designated 'relaxed', meaning we will have smaller group size and have a 'break out' space available outside the Octagon and Theatre for anyone who needs it. Open to everyone, relaxed events provide an accessible, supportive and relaxed environment, especially suited to those with autism, sensory and communication disorders, a range of learning disabilities, and anyone else who might benefit from a more relaxed environment.
