Who wouldn’t love Hugless Douglas?

Douglas is a lovable brown bear who wakes up one morning in need of a hug. He tries to find the perfect one, but none of them seem quite right. After all, there are so many different ones to choose from. But Douglas soon discovers that there’s only one hug that will do - a big bear hug from his mum!

Packed full of family fun and happy hugging, Blunderbus Theatre Company will be showcasing their brand new show Hugless Douglas at the Mansfield Palace Theatre on Wednesday, April 15, at 1pm.

Little cubs aged 3-7 years old will love this heartwarming tale, but grown-up bears will have lots of fun, too.

Join Douglas in his happy new show, full of laughter, sing along songs, puppetry and plenty of opportunities to join in!

Hugless Douglas is inspired by the story written by children’s author and illustrator David Melling.

Established in 1998, the magical minds at Blunderbus have been creating enchanting theatrical experiences and providing lasting memories for children and their families all around the world.

Blunderbus perform for more than 200,000 children each year, touring to theatres, arts centres, schools and festivals across the UK and to the exotic climes of Malaysia, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Their critically acclaimed shows have included How to Catch a Star, The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and Giraffes Can’t Dance.

The talented team behind Blunderbus lovingly design and handcraft every single puppet, prop and piece of scenery on-site at their company base in the heart of Sherwood Forest.

Their dedication and love for their craft ensures that each show is wonderfully unique and brings children’s imagination to life.

Tickets are priced £9.23 (full) and £7.18 (concessions), including a 2.5% booking fee. Contact 01623 633133 or book online at www.mansfield.gov.uk/palacetheatre
