Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Comes to King George’s Hall

Based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee that celebrates its 30th birthday this year, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show is a celebration of individuality, and the power of laughter!

As everyone knows, elephants are big, have trunks, and are grey. But Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colours! His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until one day Elmer gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd.

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show features a menagerie of 21 loveable puppets and tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but ultimately realises that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.

The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself, and combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, Elmer is a great show for children of all ages.

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show is on at King George’s Hall on Monday 19th August (2pm) and Tuesday 20th August (11am and 2pm). Tickets start at £12.50 with discounts for groups of 10+ – get yours online here.
