We're Going on a Bear HuntGo squelching through mud, slide through the long grass and splash through water as you join a family happily hunting a big bear, 'We're not scared' they chant. This is a funny stage version of the classic kiddies' book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by prolific children's author and Londoner Michael Rosen (whose books often draw on his childhood growing up in Pinner, North-West London). Tread carefully on this entertaining journey through the snowstorm, mud, water and grass as you rhyme your way into the dark forest and out to the other side where you'll discover the scary surprise waiting there. Roar! There are some great offers for We're Going on a Bear Hunt tickets now available

Suitable for children aged 3+

 

About Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue

The Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue's oldest theatre was opened in 1888, just two years after the street itself was completed. An indistinct red brick building, it lacks the grandeur of the neighbouring Gielgud and Apollo, but has a charm and unassuming beauty that are all its own. More about Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue
