Hannah Summers is an actress, singer and mum and combines each talent to bring interactive, imaginative play for parents/carers and their toddlers aged 0-4. Hannah tells a different story each month, through illustrated film slides, songs, props and creative fun.

The Ugly Duckling

An exciting brand new Storytelling story based on the famous Hans Christian Andersen tale.

There’s more to Tully, our ugly duck, who longs for adventure beyond the farm fences. What’s over that hill, where does the river go, how high is the sky? One day an adventure takes Tully on a surprising journey and she finds out who she is and where she truly belongs.

An adaptation for Storytelling, written and told by Hannah Summers, and illustrated by Laura Bissonnet with interactive and sensory role-play for 0-4’s.

£9 adult and child pair, £5 additional adult, £4 additional child.
