See Eric Carle’s much-loved story come to life this Saturday, in a critically-acclaimed production created by Jonathan Rockefeller.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar turns 50 this year, and what better way to help celebrate the timeless picture book than seeing it take to the stage with no less than 75 lovable puppets.

Arrive early to enjoy some Hungry Caterpillar colouring sheets in the café bar before each show. The Great Hall at Blackheath Halls, 23 Lee Road, Blackheath, London SE3 9RQ. May 25, at 1:30pm and 4pm.
