The Princess and the Sprout and Other Festive Tale

The Princess and the Sprout and Other Festive Tale


A brand-new Christmas show for ages 3-8 and their grown-ups Presented by Wrongsemble.

Deep within the stacks of Leeds Central Library something magical is happening – a host of children’s stories have sprung to life from the pages of the books! Don’t miss these fantastic festive fairy-tales brought to the stage by the brilliant Wrongsemble with a sprinkling of live music, wonderful characters and beautiful puppetry. Followed by an interactive stay and play session with the cast on stage after the show. Leeds’ premier Christmas show is an unmissable family experience for ages 3-8 and their grown-ups!

We will be hosting Relaxed Performances of this show, on Wednesday 19th December at 10.30am and Friday 28th December at 11am. This means we have thought about the visit to see the show, and made some changes to make it more enjoyable for people with learning disabilities, autism, and/or sensory impairments. If you think you would like a more relaxed theatre visit, everyone is welcome! Companion and carer tickets at these specific Relaxed Performances are free.
