A tale of hope, empathy and acceptance starring a Hedgehog and a Tortoise both in search of a restorative hug. They face many rejections along the way from a rather scary badger, a squirrel (who knows A LOT about nuts), a shy frog, a fabulous fox and an owl who really wants to be wise.
Set to Tom Gray's beautiful and witty music, the audience are invited on a journey full of fun, laughter and love...and at the end, a very special hug from our puppets.
The Hug is presented by Long Nose Puppets and is based on the heart-warming and funny book 'The Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar.

Their previous shows include Shoe Baby (Winner: Best Children’s Show at the Brighton Fringe Festival), Fly Away Katie, Penguin, Arthur’s Dream Boat , Pat-a-Cake Baby and Out of the Hat!
