it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.

Director Sally Cookson brings the beguiling magic alive in this production

Why See We're Going On A Bear Hunt?

We're going to see A Bear Hunt!

Michael Rosen's cherished children's story returns to the West End in this sensational stage adaptation! Follow a family as they splash through a rushing river, climb over tall grass and wade through thick mud on a journey to find a very furry, very big treasure! Going On A Bear Hunt is a theatre event perfect for primary school kids, with lots of audience and singing along.

The production uses basic props and effects to bring the wild terrain our character's encounter to life (almost literally in some cases!) and a catchy score created by Benji Bower. Kids aged three to seven years old will just love getting involved in the hunt right from their seats, and helping the characters ensure they can identity the bear when they find him! Even critic's have praised this lively and vivid stage production by director Sally Cookson, with one calling it the "perfect mini-adventure for the summer holidays".

What is A Bear Hunt about?

Dad and kids decide to go an adventure one day... but not just any ordinary adventure, they're going to travel across the land to the dark, scary caves to find a bear! Are you brave enough to go with them? They might just need your help!

"We're going on a bear hunt,
We're going to catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared!"
