A magical interactive storytime and craft with author and illustrator duo Katie Harnett and Jen Campbell.

Today is Franklin’s birthday. He’s turning six hundred and six!
He thinks his friends have all forgotten... they haven’t sent him any gifts.

It's Franklin the dragon's birthday and the whole village is planning a surprise party. To make sure it remains a secret, Franklin's best friend Luna distracts him by taking him to the local bookshop. It's there that they discover a strange book of fairy tales with a sign that says 'DON'T OPEN!'. However, Luna's pet tortoise can't help but peer inside... and when he does, he disappears! Luna and Franklin dive inside the book to rescue him. On their quest they meet a host of fairy tale characters, not all of whom are friendly!

Will Luna and Franklin find Neil the tortoise and make it home in time for the party?

What families are saying

November 2019

Wonderful performers! We really enjoyed the Jazz Penguin show and the atmosphere in this lovely, friendly hidden gem.

August 2019

This was lovely, but really too advanced for a 3-month old. He had no idea what was going on and got very restless towards the end. It was also pretty pricey for a half-hour performance. I’d definitely go back when he’s a bit older, though!

August 2019

My 8 month old was definitely engaged but it was £17 for both of us! The production was great but I think they need to change venue as pickled pepper books obviously charge way to much to hire the space.
