There’s no need to book, however please note there is limited capacity.

The Tortoise and the Hare
Tortoise and Hare decide to have a race. Hare is so confident and certain he will win, he takes a nap while Tortoise keeps going, slowly and steadily plodding along to the finish line. But who will win? A tale about not giving up, and winning in unexpected ways.

The Lion and the Mouse
Lion is asleep when Little Mouse runs right across his nose and wakes him up. Lion is furious and threatens to open his big jaws to swallow him. “Oh please, great King,” cries Little Mouse: “I didn’t mean to wake you. Let me go and I will return the favour one day I promise”. Lion doesn’t believe such a little Mouse could ever be able help him, but is so amused he lifts his paw and lets him go. Weeks later, Lion is caught in a trap. Who will come to save him? Could Little Mouse really help the king of the jungle?
A tale to teach us that kindness is more important than strength and even the smallest of us can make a difference.
