You’re Invited on a Bear Hunt!

We’re going to the theatre
We’re going to see a bear hunt
What a beautiful play!
We’re not scared!

Based on the book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated By Helen Oxenbury

See the smash-hit production of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt this March at King George’s Hall and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the much-loved picture book by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.

Sally Cookson’s hugely inventive production set to Benji Bower’s lively musical score is a mischievous celebration of play, utilising everyday objects and materials to capture the imagination and propel audiences into the world of the family favourite.

Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they wade through the swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the oozy squelchy mud, in search of a bear. Expect plenty of interaction and a few surprises along the way.

Music, laughter, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud… not to mention a bear – we’re not scared! – make this fun-filled adventure the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.

Michael Rosen says of the live theatre show: ”This production of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt takes everyone on the journey – not under, not over, oh no – through it! – in a funny, exuberant and loving way. It’s a show full of laughter, music, silliness and thrills that I promise you will excite and delight all young children. This is a must-go show.”

This mischievous celebration of play is the perfect treat for families with children aged three and up.
