One Snowy Night


A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth

Visit the show website here.

One winter’s night it was so cold it began to snow. Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy’s hut…

Percy the Park Keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night, Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them. A snuggly, heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to, furry friends to meet and blankets to be tucked up in.

This book is from the ever-popular Tales from Percy’s Park series which celebrated its 21st birthday in 2010, when this stage version premiered at Norden Farm in a sell-out Christmas season where it delighted over 10,000 theatregoers.

What the papers say…


‘Nick Butterworth’s tale is obviously well-known and well-loved, and Slot Machine’s production adds to its magic with the help of handmade puppets, an original soundtrack and dance. One Snowy Night is an ideal introduction to the theatre for children from the age of three, though older children will enjoy it just as much.’ The Stage (full review here)

‘A heartwarming story with songs to sing along to, furry friends to meet and blankets to be tucked up in, One Snowy Night is great fun for younger children. It’s especially recommended for their first introduction to the theatre.’ Maidenhead Advertiser
