Humbug! The Hedgehog Who Couldn't Sleep

Thursday 13th - Sunday 30th December

Christmas at NST

Appropriate for all ages, especially 2 – 5 yrs.

Running Time: Approx 50mins

You don’t want to be above ground when winter comes around: every hedgehog knows that.

Deep in the snowy New Forest, Humbug snuggles down to sleep through winter. Suddenly her home comes under threat and she is forced to leave. Venturing out into a winter wonderland for the first time, Humbug goes on an exciting adventure in search of a new home and meets a host of weird and wonderful characters along the way.

A brand new funny and uplifting tale of friendship and belonging with original music and charming characters to entertain children and adults alike.


"Nothing short of a spectacle."

The Scotsman on To The End of The World 

"Moving, visually astonishing... bittersweet beauty might very well stop your heart."
