Tales from the Shed: London Bridges

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

TALES from the Shed’s new show for Summer 2014 is London Bridges. Described as a brilliant and funny celebration of the world of stories, it runs at Chickenshed Chase Side on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from July 31 to August 9.

Our hero, story-collector Jack, lives on one of London’s many bridges and is on a quest to collect the magical stories brought to his city from around the world.

Join some very familiar characters – the stubborn Princess, the mysterious Wizard, the dastardly Villain, the Fool and our clever Hero, Jack – as they retell a cascade of stories old and new, and even some of the stories suggested by you, the audience.

Amazing puppets, beautiful music and a madcap and zany energy all collide to make London Bridges a true theatrical highlight for younger children.

London Bridges comes to Chickenshed fresh from playing to capacity crowds at Barclaycard’s British Summer Festival at Hyde Park alongside Sir Tom Jones, Boyzone and Little Mix!

London Bridges is suitable for ages 0-7 years.

Tickets: £7, free to babies under 1 year. To book, visit

Times: Thursday 10am and 11.30am; Friday and Saturday 10am, 11.30am and 1pm.

Running Time: 50 – 60 minutes.
