Hedgehogs Don’t Live in the City

Grace and Archie live in the hustling, bustling city of London. They love scootering through the parks on their way to school, racing through piles of leaves. But one day, Grace is sure she sees something unusual. Something small. Something spiky. Something with a little pig-like snout… She’s certain she’s seen a hedgehog! But Archie tells Grace that hedgehogs don’t live in the city! Join Cat & Hutch for an interactive storytelling show of Lucy Reynolds’ book, Hedgehogs Don’t Live in the City, and go on an educational adventure where you’ll learn all about our little spiky friends that we find in our city and how to care for them. Aimed at ages 3+, fun for all the family!
