We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

Conductor Levon Parikian
Narrator Andy Day

“We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared.” A delightful, immersive retelling of the beloved children’s story with a few added twists and turns as the British Sinfonietta and narrator children’s TV presenter Andy Day take us on a musical journey through long wavy grass, thick oozy mud and a swirling whirling snowstorm in search of big furry bear.

Little people will get the chance to learn all about the instruments in the orchestra (and meet their players) and – best bit! – some will even be invited up on the stage to play percussion in the show.

The perfect introduction to the thrill of a live orchestra!

recommended for over 3s, seated show, duration 1 hour approx.

Enjoy Bear Hunt with your complimentary cup of Pukka Tea

Co-founder of Hoo-Ha partners Pukka Herbs, Tim Westwell, has hand-picked two flavours of Pukka tea for all audience members, young and old, to enjoy whilst watching Bear Hunt. Be sure to pick up a cup on your way in.

Tim Says…

“As your families explore the delights of the orchestra on their bear hunt, they can taste the delights of the world around them too with our Super Fruity teas. These child-friendly teas, in flavours like Wild Apple & Cinnamon and Blackcurrant Beauty, remind me of summer walks through woodlands, and can transport you on your very own sensory trip through the woods during this delightful, immersive retelling of the beloved children’s story.”
