About the event

Cooper the rat is having a very strange day… Asha has been invited to an important event and it’s up to Cooper to get her there on time and ready to party! Will he pull it off without getting caught by Rats All Folks Exterminators? You and your household are invited to join in this epic adventure and help him along the way…

The Tale of the Charming Rat was originally made as a live outdoor show, set tour to Somerset towns and villages this season. They performed three live shows at Children’s World’s festive event in December before tighter Covid restrictions came in. Children’s world said of the performance:

“The Tale of the Charming Rat is a warm-hearted, beautifully performed show. Tall Tails and Wassail have successfully created a performance that is engaging and accessible for a broad audience, that is playful, musical and memorable. We loved having the show as part of our festive event.”
