Tabby McTat

8th December 2018 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm


Freckle Productions present

Tabby McTat

From the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler


“Me, you and the old guitar,

How perfectly, perfectly happy we are.

MEEE-EW and the old guitar.

How PURRRR-fectly happy we are!”


Tabby McTat is a cat with the loudest of meee-ews and a best friend with a guitar. Together they sing their favourite songs delighting the crowds, until one day Fred disappears. Separated and alone, Tabby finds shelter and a new life with all the home comforts that any cat could dream of. However, memories of his life with Fred haunt him, and he sets off to search the streets for his long-lost friend.


Interwoven with original songs, Tabby McTat is the heart-warming tale of friendship and loyalty from the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales.


Suitable for children and families of all ages.
