A magical musical delight for young children flies into the Grimsby Auditorium next month.

Tall Stories’ Room on the Broom is a spellbinding adventure from the creators of The Gruffalo - Julia Donaldson MBE and Axel Scheffler.

The witch and her cat are flying happily along on their broomstick when a stormy wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away into the night.

With the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, her belongings are retrieved.

But this broomstick’s not meant for five and - CRACK! - it snaps in two!

When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?

The show, aimed at children aged three years and above, will be at Grimsby Auditorium on November 4, with performances at 1.30pm and 4pm, and Tuesday November 5, 10.30am and 1.30pm, although the 10.30am performance is now sold out.

Tickets cost £12, family ticket for four £42 the box office on 0844 871 3016 or from www.atgtickets.com/grimsby and Cleethorpes Tourist Information.
