Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show

About Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show

Based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee this is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter! Elephants, as everyone knows, are big, have trunks, and are grey. But Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colours! His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd. Featuring a menagerie of 21 loveable puppets, this is a great show for children of all ages.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
