Come and meet the lonely giant for a 25 minute family friendly storytelling performance followed by a stay and play activity! Please book a ticket per child. The Giant’s Blanket: A story by Claire Weetman A lonely giant shelters from the storm under a mountain of blankets. Travelling two giant steps at a time, she secretly gifts her blankets of kindness and care to people and animals in the town, but nobody notices the giant. Travel with the giant through the storm to a place where she eventually feels part of a community. Claire Weetman will bring this story to life using the Giant’s Blankets which will transform into crashing clouds and twisting tornadoes; the giant uses her blankets to make a hammock that rescues a cyclist, a tent to protect an engineer and a sling for a baby; and the blankets make a space for a wonderful community picnic when everyone returns to thank the helpful giant who has made some new friends.
