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, heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to and furry friends to meet.

The show's original run was at Norden Farm in 2010 and it returns by popular demand! Created by Slot Machine, the company that brought the hit Christmas shows Miki (2011) and Kipper's Snowy Day (2014).

Suitable for ages 3+

Running time: 50 minutes

Family & Friends Ticket Offer - Book 4 tickets for the discounted price of £45.
Offer applied in basket. Groups must contain at least one adult and one child.
