London For Toddlers: The Curious Rat
3 - 8 yrs

The Curious Rat

May 4, 2024 - July 21, 2024

£12 - £14

A big adventure for a small city rat

The Curious Rat tells the story of Lucien, a lonely city rat who watches the pigeons from his home under Waterloo Bridge and wishes he could join them in the sky. One day he spots the most amazing pigeon and takes his first brave steps to follow her into the lights of the big city…

Come with Lucien as he scampers across the bridge, dodging rain drops. He will meet a set of troublesome traffic lights, take a ride on a busy bus, dance at the carnival and even escape a flock of angry seagulls. On his adventure he will discover that he may not be a bird with wings, but that he has been given his own special things.

A poignant and poetic tale to inspire children and adults alike. Playfully combining puppetry and animated projection, this story encourages audiences to celebrate the things that make them unique.

At the end of each show there will be an opportunity for everyone to stay in their seats and find out a bit more about the show, meet the puppets, play some games and ask any questions. This is optional and will last an additional 15 minutes.
