One Snowy Night

A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth.

One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…


Percy the Park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…

A snuggly, fun and heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to and furry friends to meet. Age guidance 3+ years.

‘Magical – an ideal introduction to the theatre for children’ ★★★★★ The Stage

Created by Slot Machine, the company that brought the hit Christmas shows Miki and Kipper's Snowy Day to Norden Farm.

‘A little gem! ...Very creative and so much fun. Our daughter couldn't stop laughing out loud’ ★★★★★ Netmums
