FAMILIES from Bridgwater and beyond are invited to join the Gruffalo's Child on her adventurous mission this September.

The show, which is presented by Tall Stories and directed by Olivia Jacobs, will take place at The McMillan Theatre on Saturday, September 30 at 1pm and at 4.30pm.

If you can't make this, don't worry. There will be another showing on Sunday, October 1, at 11am.

The show, an adaptation of the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, follows the story of the Gruffalo's Child, who, on one wild and windy night, ignores her father's warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and ventures into the dark wood.

There, she encounters strange, mysterious creatures.

The McMillan Theatre's website reads: "Let your imagination run wild with songs, laughs and scary fun for everyone aged 3 to 103."

Tickets cost £14 and £12 for children aged under 12. Family tickets cost £48.
