Big Imaginations is bringing magic and enchantment to families across the North West & Yorkshire. From puppets to palaces, check out these fantastic fairytales we have to offer in April:


A new puppet show for ages 4+ and their families.

Norwich Puppet Theater are delighted to present an exciting re-imagining of this classic Italian fairy tale.

Join puppet Pinocchio on a fast-paced adventure of self-discovery, as they try, fail, and try again to find their heart and become a real person. It’s a playful story exploring what it means to love – with hints of danger, slapstick humour and a very big fish!

This visual production features puppetry, illusion, and object theatre, as well as an atmospheric soundtrack.

Join Pinocchio at The Dukes in Lancaster on Saturday 2nd April.

Little Grimm Tales

What if the wishes were granted? What if the magic were real?

Beasts and breadcrumbs, wolves and witches, frogs and fairies all join the fun in a stunning new adaptation of Grimm’s most magical tales. Head into the woods with Hansel & Grethel, help the little elves to make beautiful shoes, watch a slimy frog become a prince, and meet the princess who’s champion of hide-and-seek!

Join award winning Box Tale Soup on an adventure for children aged 3+, featuring wonderful puppets, innovative theatre and spellbinding original music. Everyone knows even the wildest fairy tales hold a grain of truth…

You can catch Little Grimm Tales at Waterside in Sale on Sunday 10th April.

Fairy Tales

An interactive world of play and storytelling for 0-8 year olds and their grown-ups.

Once upon a time there were three bears, and they owned a little Bed and Breakfast in the forest.

Step into a fairy tale town and through into the woods to discover a world of giants, palaces, gingerbread houses and treasure caves. Trip trap over a bridge (but watch out for the troll!), join in the palace disco with the musicians of Bremen, sit in a giant’s footprint, visit the market and help Jack win some magic beans, and much more.

Enter a Fairy Tale world at Z-arts in Manchester from now until February 2023.
