Coming soon: Baa Humbug


Saturday 8 December - Saturday 15 December

I don't need friends. I don't want friends. I'm perfectly fine all by myself, thank you very much.

Join a rambunctious group of farm animals on Christmas Eve as they celebrate the holiday season. The only problem is Humbug the Sheep won't join in. Humbug thinks it's a waste of time to have friends and play their silly games. But Humbug isn’t happy...

With the help of a wise old Farmer, a time-travelling tractor and a little bit of Christmas magic, Humbug the Sheep comes to see how important it is to have friends and to feel happy about new experiences.

Using storytelling and audience participation, Baa Humbug will captivate children aged 4+ and their families. As we join Humbug's journey of self-discovery, we will learn about recognising difficult emotions and how to deal with them positively. Children and adults alike will celebrate each other and the power of friendship, whilst singing, playing and having fun.
