Helen Stephens’ rip roaring story comes to life with puppetry and songs.

When a lion is chased out of town, a young girl helps him find somewhere to hide. It’s not easy – lions are too big, too fluffy and too heavy!

Join Iris on a mission to squeeze and squash her furry new friend into a variety of sneaky spots, as Helen Stephens’ magical book comes to life this Easter holiday with playful humour, dazzling puppetry and original songs.

If you fancy some extra lion-related fun this Easter, why not try our hidden lion trail?

You might not realise it, but Oxford is full of lions hiding in the most unexpected places.

Download our trail here to help you find them. Complete the trail, put your name and contact details on it and hand it in to our Ticket Office and you could win a family ticket to see The Gruffalo this summer.

Some of these lions are quite well hidden, so we’ve also put together a hint sheet to help guide you, as well as an answer sheet, to check you’ve got it all right.

If you're new to Oxford, or just not sure exactly where all the locations are, you find them on this map.

Duration: 0:50

Based on the book by Helen Stephens
Adapted and directed by Peter Glanville
Music and songs by Barb Jungr
