The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show
30 November – 11 December 2021

Tickets are now available on The Mill Arts Centre’s website.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author/illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969 selling more than 43 million copies worldwide.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colourful hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world – and to their first experience of reading itself.

And now, the timeless classic has made its way off the page and onto the stage.

Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly and of course, the star of the show The Very Hungry Caterpillar who celebrated its 50th Birthday in 2019.

Catch this fantastic family show at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury 30 November – 11 December 2021. Tickets are £15 each or £55 for a family of four, and can be purchased on our website, in person at our Box Office, and by contacting our Box Office team on 01295 279002 or
