Calling all young explorers! The Gruffalo’s Child is taking over Abu Dhabi this May

Hey there, little adventurers!

Get ready to be dazzled because a fantastic children’s performance is hitting Abu Dhabi on 24 and 25 May.

It’s none other than The Gruffalo’s Child, straight from the pages of the beloved book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Tall Stories and Centre Stage are bringing magic to the Cultural foundation, so mark your calendars!

Picture this – The Gruffalo’s Child, defying warnings about the Big Bad Mouse, tiptoeing into the deep dark wood on a windy night. The stage is set, the excitement is brewing, and your kiddos are in for a wild ride of enchantment.

Don’t miss the chance to dive into the whimsical world of storytelling.

But wait, there’s more!

The Cultural Foundation’s Abu Dhabi Children’s Library is turning into a hub of daily awesomeness. Think fiction, non-fiction, novels, and even autobiographies – catering to cool kids up to 14 years old.

From early childhood development to artsy activities, it’s a paradise for little minds with reading, writing, arts, crafts, and heaps of exploration.

Calling all budding Picassos and craft enthusiasts!

The Cultural Foundation’s got your back. Monthly creative workshops and courses for both big and little artists are happening at Bait Al Khatt, Al Marsam Al Hor, and the Children’s Art Centre.

Guess what?

The cherry on top – entrance to the Cultural Foundation won’t cost you a dirham! Yep, you read that right. And if you want to catch The Gruffalo’s Child live, tickets start at just AED 30. Bargain alert!
