When the Velveteen Rabbit is unwrapped on Christmas morning, he quickly becomes just another thing gathering dust in the toy box. Shunned by the other playthings, who are braver, more glamorous and have expensive motors and flashing lights, he fears he’ll never be played with. But a chance encounter makes him the favourite toy, and with a little magic and a lot of love, he might even become real!

Spinning Wheel Theatre brings this beautiful tale to life with actors, inventive puppetry and original songs. A joyful and uplifting tale of magic, friendship and hope, this is a show for all the family to enjoy! Suitable for children aged 4 and over. Running time approximately 1 hour.

Tickets are priced at £6.50 and can be purchased online. Every audience member will require a ticket.

After the show there will be refreshments and a rabbit themed craft activity.
