THE BEAR at NORDEN FARM

This Christmas will see The Bear come to Norden Farm. From the author who gave us the Snowman, The Bear is set to be a sure-fire hit with the little'uns.



Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?

One night when she's fast asleep, Tilly is visited by an enormous bear. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared. The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.


Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.
