Following the successful run of Ugly Duckling at Sadler’s Wells in 2013 and the BAFTA-winning TV adaptation for CBeebies, Northern Ballet brings its magic to Tortoise & the Hare, which has also recently been adapted for Cbeebies.

Once upon a time there was a speedy hare who never stopped talking about how fast he could run. Tired of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!

Bringing this much-loved Aesop’s fable to life, Tortoise & the Hare is the perfect opportunity for little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre, in a child-friendly 40-minute production.
