Win a family ticket to Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Live at the Grand Opera House York!

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant celebrates his 30th birthday this year, and he’s going on tour to celebrate! Based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee, the show promises to be a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter. Elmer will be arriving at the Grand Opera House York on Monday 11th March and staying until Tuesday 12th March 2019 (Monday at 1pm & 3pm, Tuesday at 10am & 12pm).

Elephants, as everyone knows, are big, have trunks, and are grey. But Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colours! His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd. Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show features a menagerie of 21 loveable puppets and tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but who ultimately realizes that his friends have value him for who he is. The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself, combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, makes Elmer a great show for children of all ages. Visit the Grand Opera House website for more details and to book.
