A Moomin Winter’s Day

Book tickets for Saturday 16 December >>

Book tickets for Sunday 17 December >>

Over the weekend, celebrate the festive season with a variety of Moomin-themed activities:

•    The Polka Theatre’s beautifully crafted Moomin puppets will be coming out of hibernation for a special appearance, where you'll get the chance to say hello and meet your favourite Moomin character. 

•    Write a letter to Father Christmas (and you might just receive a special reply!)

•    Fill a glass bauble with a loving message for family or friends - the perfect Christmas pressie!

•    On Sunday only, be taken on a theatrical journey by the Freshwater Theatre Company exploring the work and life of Tove Jansson. 

•    Get lost in Scandinavian folktales performed by storyteller Debbie Guneratne. There will also be the opportunity to settle into the Gallery’s snug Mausoleum to read from a selection of Jansson’s books.

•    Exclusive entry to Tove Jansson, with a free family trail and special labels with activities to enjoy together.
